Hi Binnur,

Do you know the difference between Ahi Tuna, sold in the seafood section in local supermarkets and regular canned Tuna Fish? What type is the best choice to buy? Does it make a difference in taste? Some taste like chicken, which I don't like.

Hi Stephanie,
Ahi or Yellowfin is sold as light tuna. The regular tuna is sold as white meat tuna which is more tasty:)
Take care,
