It is called yellowfin tuna because almost all the fins it has are yellow. Yellowfin is very easy to find; it is available in all parts of the world. It lives mostly in subtropical and tropical water. When you compare yellowfin with other species of tuna, it is relatively larger than them.
Since yellowfin is very common to see and it lives in all parts of the world, it is less expensive. Yellowfins are more available during summer, although they can be found during any season in a year, they are always in abundance during the summer period.
