YELLOWFIN TUNA THUNNUS ALBACARES

The body is deep, but streamlined. It has a metallic, deep blue back, changing to yellow and silver on the belly. A yellow band extends down the side, and the belly often has about 20 vertical broken lines, a characteristic found on no other tuna, but not always noticeably present on yellowfin tuna. Large fish are easily identified by the long crescent-shaped extensions of the anal and second dorsal fins.
