The Yellowfin Tuna (Thunnus albacares) are members of the fish family Scombridae found in the tropical and subtropical oceans worldwide. The Yellowfin Tuna is large and its name comes from the bright yellow coloring of its finlet, second dorsal and anal fin.

They are highly social, always traveling in groups among themselves, with other tuna species, dolphins, and porpoises. Their torpedo-shaped body gives them speed while their back and upper sides are metallic blue and belly yellow or silver. They are differentiated from other tunas by their slender body with a bright yellow dorsal fin. Besides being a popular cuisine, they are also valued by sports fishermen.

Yellowfin Tunas have a total length between 43”-83” (110-210 cm), body height of 10.5”-20.5” (26.7-52 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 300-400 lb (136-181 kg). The typical lifespan of the Yellowfin Tuna is 5-10 years.
