AHI (YELLOWFIN TUNA, SHIBI)
Ahi are the most sought after fish in Hawaiian waters. They are built like footballs and sometimes giant footballs made for speed. They are also eating machines growing to full adult size in 5-6 years. Ahi are known for hard runs and long fights. In Hawaii, a Yellowfin is considered an Ahi after reaching a weight of 100 lbs. and it is called a Shibi if it is under 100 lbs. Ahi sometimes travel in schools while the Shibi are always found in schools.
