Skipjack Tuna

Skipjack tuna is found worldwide in tropical and subtropical waters and is a highly migratory schooling species. The skipjack generally weighs between 7 and 15 pounds and is targeted by specialized fleets that process and freeze on board. Cannon Fish imports high-quality skipjack from around the world year-round. This rich, tender, and delicately full-flavored, hearty fish is extremely popular because of its versatility in the kitchen. Skipjack has become increasingly popular among chefs in recent years as a substitute for yellowfin tuna.
