I surfed into Tuna.com , its the BumbleBee tuna website. Except for white tuna which can only be Albacore, they stated the majority of tuna in thier products is Skipjack.
Maybe a dumb question but I thought skipjack tuna basicly the same as little tunnys & they arent known as a good eating fish.
Also I wonder if skippys were allways the main tuna used in canning & if not what was.
Thanks,
alan

Scal - I believe they are referring to ocean skipjack, not the false albies we get locally. A different fish. I know people who like the ocean skipjacks, they say it's very white meat.

Now smoked yellofin, that's awsome!! :)

When I used to go out to Montauk, the tuna plant out there throws away alot of good parts of the yellowfin. I used to take some home and smoke it. YUM! I want to get back out that way soon.
