A saltwater finfish found in warm seas, tuna belongs to a subgroup of the mackerel family. Tuna are streamlined and fast, and some breeds can swim at speeds up to 46 mph.

TUNA BASICS

  • Tuna season runs from late spring to early fall, but tuna is available in frozen steak form year-round.
  • Depending on variety, tuna steak color ranges from light pink to a deep, dark red.
  • As soon as you leave the fish market, get your tuna into the refrigerator. Store it in the coldest part.
  • Eat your tuna within 24 hours of purchase.
