Yellowtail is a member of the genus Yellowtail of the family Carangidae. The big, greasy yellowtail caught in winter is treated as a high-class fish, but the small ones caught in summer are very cheap and can be enjoyed.
Whole or Filleted This fish is available whole or filleted. Whole fish may weigh slightly less than listed with the innards removed. Filleted fish weights are nett flesh yields with the head, bones and innards removed.
