Atlantic Bigeye Tuna

Thunnus obesus

Also Known As

Tuna, Big eye, Ahi-b

U.S. wild-caught Atlantic bigeye tuna—while only a small percent (about 1%) of the total Atlantic-wide harvest—is a smart seafood choice because it is sustainably managed and responsibly harvested under U.S. regulations.





U.S. wild-caught from Massachusetts to Florida.


Bigeye tuna has a mild, meaty flavor, with a higher fat content than yellowfin tuna. Sashimi lovers prefer it.


Firm and moist with large flakes.


Bigeye tuna meat has a reddish-pink color.

Health Benefits
