The value of the bluefin tuna fishery is driven largely by the high demand for top-quality, fresh tuna for the Japanese market. Fresh bluefin tuna is most valuable when the fat content is high (generally between the end of July and October) and when the fish has been handled properly to maintain its freshness and appearance. Tuna buyers are easily able to recognize when fish have been improperly handled. Step-by-step illustrations offer tips for doing it right; laminated for use on board vessels.
