Initial comments[edit]

The "ahi" disambiguation page directs to "tuna," though Ahi is actually specifically yellowfin tuna. Plus, neither the "tuna" article nor this article mention "ahi" anywhere. Funkeboy 18:37, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

Okay, so, I edited the "ahi" disambiguation page to point here. This article could probably still benefit from mentioning "ahi" somewhere.

Removed folk etymology for ahi, which comes from Hawaiian ʻahi "Hawaiian tuna fishes, especially the yellow-fin tuna (Thunnus albacares)," which in turn derives from earlier *kasi (*k > /ʻ/, *s > /h/). Hawaiian ahi 'fire' comes from earlier *afi. Source: Hawaiian Dictionary (1986) compiled by Mary Kawena Pukui and Samuel Hoyt Elbert. Joel (talk) 21:39, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

I think maguro is usually bluefin tuna in Japan. It says so here as well: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_sushi_and_sashimi_ingredients So I'll just take that last comment off..

I don't think Ahi should point to this page. http://www.hawaii-seafood.org/bigeye.html shows that Bigeye tuna is also called Ahi. Merriam-Webster online also http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/ahi shows Bigeye and Yellowfin as Ahi. In Hawaii, any red meat tuna may be Ahi. Maguro is red tuna in Japanese and Yellowfin may be listed as maguro.

I guess the disambiguation page should just point to Big-Eye and perhaps Albacore as well, although I would think it better to point to the main Tuna page. This link has a good list of Tuna names which suggests albacore. http://www.gotmercury.org/pdf/ChicagoSushi.pdf

The photo in the Life History section, Thunnus albacares.jpg, is upside down. Ellis Solros (talk) 16:45, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

Assessment comment[edit]

The comment(s) below were originally left at Talk:Yellowfin tuna/Comments, and are posted here for posterity. Following several discussions in past years, these subpages are now deprecated. The comments may be irrelevant or outdated; if so, please feel free to remove this section.

1. there is no yellowfin tuna (thunnus albacares) in the Mediterranean.

2. the Guardian link published here is about Bluefin tuna (thunnus thynnus)not yellowfin tuna (thunnus albacares)

3. Ahi is yellowfin tuna from Polynesia FAO zone 77. I have no idea of any study (link please!) of yellowfin tuna reported endangered in any area of the world (Pacific, Atlantic, India Ocean).
