The Albacore Yellowfin Tuna or white tuna, is characterized by its yellow fin (from which it gets its name), and is the variety with the highest capture rate. Because of this, it is the most common variety used in conserves. It is a medium quality variety that is not as white or fine textured as the Albacore long finned tuna, but is also well known for its pleasant taste.
This species in tropical and subtropical open seas around the world can reach 200 kg in weight. Its consumption extends throughout the world due to its organoleptic qualities and forms part of the Mediterranean diet. Its distinctive pink colour and health benefits also make it a valued delicacy to consumers.
White tuna is an excellent source of protein with a high biological value and vitamins and minerals. It has the advantage of being low in saturated fats and high in omega-3 (anti-cholesterol) content.
