Fresh Ahi Tuna (Sashimi Grade)
Seasons / Availability
The availability of ahi tuna has increased as a result of the expansion of the harvest range of the long-line fleets out of Hawaii and the South Pacific. Ahi tuna is flown in directly to us on a daily basis.
The average serving size of an ahi steak is one half pound. Ahi steaks are usually sliced thinly, but can be served whole or cubed depending on the preparation. If eaten as sushi, the serving size can be reduced.

Did you know?
“Ahi” refers to the yellowfin, bluefin and big eye tuna. All our tuna is long-line harvested in the pristine waters of Hawaii and the South Pacific and is flown to us directly on a daily basis. Our ahi is caught at anywhere between 3 and 250 fathoms and ranges in size between 30 and 200 pounds. We typically only sell the larger fish as they are preferred for their higher oil content; and these fish are steaked at 1½ inches in thickness.
