About Yellowtail Edit

This large game fish (up to 100 pounds) is found off the coast of Southern California and further south into Mexican waters. It is a member of the jack family — related to pompano — with a flavor and texture similar to tuna. Yellowtail is only occasionally available commercially. It may be prepared in any way suitable for tuna.

Eating Sustainably Edit

Imported, Australian, and Japanese farmed yellowtail should be avoided.
