Origin: Nagasaki, Japan.

Fish Facts: When butchering a whole Tuna, the fish is divided into three categories based on its fat marbling: Otoro (high concentration of marbling), Chutoro (medium marbling), and Akami (little marbling/ lean). Akami is the most common and frequently used part of the fish as it makes up 70% of the fish’s butchered weight. This lean red meat is located near the center of the fish along the spine, whereas Otoro and Chutoro are located closer to the fish’s belly.

Taste and Cooking: Akami Tuna when compared to Otoro and Chutoro can be easily recognized by its darker red color. Its leanness gives the fish a meatier texture than cuts found along the belly, as well as a more prominent fish flavour. Akami Tuna can be served in a multitude of ways such as maki rolls, nigiri sushi, sashimi, as well as poke.
