Southern Bluefin Tuna Profile
“We produce amazing tunas in Australia, from the albacore to yellowfin and bigeye, too, but the southern bluefin tuna is the most delicious,” says fish expert John Susman of Fishtales seafood consultants.
Indeed, we have the Japanese to thank for the SBT’s luxury status. The nation’s discovery that Australian bluefin is one of the world’s highest-quality tuna, perfect for sashimi prep, and their teaching of fishermen how to catch and handle them, has seen SBT gain rockstar status in less than a generation.
“Be prepared for a unique difference in southern bluefin tuna from other species,” says Susman. “Whilst other tunas have bright-red flesh, the colour of the meat in southern bluefin tuna is a rich burgundy and can be a light pink across the fat-filled belly, which makes it an unctuous eating experience.
“The flesh is typically softer than other tunas also, due to its very high fat content, which makes it a highly prized sashimi fish. But it’s perfect for braising or to confit at low temperature, too.”
