In Hawaii, “Ahi” refers to two species, the Bigeye Tuna and the Yellowfin Tuna. Yellowfin Tuna are caught year-round in Hawaiʻi’s waters but are most abundant during the summer season (May-September). Yellowfin have a slimmer profile than the bigeye tuna and have distinctive bright yellow finlets and soft dorsal and anal fins that tend to lengthen with age. Large fish (over 100 pounds) are usually caught in deep open ocean waters and are preferred for their typically higher fat content and greater yields. Most of Hawaiʻi’s Yellowfin Tuna are caught by deep-set longline fishing gear off shore of Hawaiʻi. The remainder of Hawaiʻi landings come from trollers, handliners and pole & line boats (aku boats).

Ehu or Ruby Snapper is a slow growing, deep-water bottomfish found throughout the western Pacific. It is caught along with other snappers, jacks, and groupers in the bottomfish fisheries in many Pacific island states. The most productive fishery is the Hawaiian deep slope fishery. In the main Hawaiian Islands, deep bottomfish biomass declined from the 1960 to the 1980s, but has since been stable and is currently at moderate levels. Fishery regulations include restricted fishing areas, prohibition of destructive gears, and catch limits for the Hawaiian fishery. The principal gear used in these fisheries is hook-and-line, which does not damage the seafloor and results in moderate levels of by-catch. Learn More.
