What is a "skipjack"?

Skipjack is a species of tuna found in warm waters around the world. It is known for its streamlined body, dark blue to greenish-black coloration on the back, and silver-white underside. Skipjack tuna are highly migratory and can be found in large schools, often swimming near the surface of the water. They are fast swimmers and are known for their agility and endurance. Skipjack tuna are an important commercial fish species, highly sought after for their meat, which is used in a variety of culinary preparations such as sushi, sashimi, and canned tuna. They are also a popular target for recreational anglers due to their strong fighting ability. Despite being a widely harvested species, skipjack tuna populations are generally considered to be healthy and are sustainably managed in many regions.
