Skipjack, or light tuna, has a darker, pinkish colour compared to other tuna species. The texture of the smaller chunks makes it perfect for casseroles, sandwiches and salads.
- Skipjack tuna is one of the smaller species of tuna with an average weight of 3 kg. It is distinguished by the presence of four to seven dark, longitudinal stripes on their bellies. They have silvery flanks and short fins.
