Tuna

What is Tuna?

Tuna are several species of ocean-dwelling fish in the family Scombridae. Unlike most ocean fish species, which have white flesh, the flesh of tuna is pink. This is because the tuna's muscle tissue has a higher oxygen storage capacity than other fish species.

Tuna Shopping Tips

Seafood shopping is quite easy in the general sense. Rule of thumb: if it smells fishy, don't buy. Fresh seafood should smell mild and more like the ocean and sea water rather than fish.
