Scientific name: Coryphaena hippurus

  • The Yellowfin Tuna is a species of tuna found in pelagic waters of tropical and subtropical oceans worldwide.
  • The Yellowfin Tuna is among the larger tuna species, reaching weights over 180 kg (400 lb), but is significantly smaller than the Atlantic and Pacific bluefin tunas, which can reach over 450 kg (990 lb), and slightly smaller than the bigeye tuna and the southern bluefin tuna.
  • The second dorsal fin and the anal fin, as well as the finlets between those fins and the tail, are bright yellow, giving this fish its common name.
  • The second dorsal and anal fins can be very long in mature specimens, reaching almost as far back as the tail and giving the appearance of sickles or scimitars.
  • The main body is a very dark metallic blue, changing to silver on the belly, which has about 20 vertical lines.
