Tuna fish is one of the most loved fishes in the world, thanks in part to the popularity of canned tuna. Yet, while canned tuna is a delicious and nutritious food, if you have never tried fresh tuna, you have been missing out on an even healthier culinary treat since fresh tuna retains more of its beneficial omega-3 fats than canned.
Tuna is firm and dense and has the meatiest flavor and texture of any fish. Tuna is sold in many different forms. It is available fresh as steaks, fillets or pieces. Tuna is probably best known in its canned form.
