Grade #1 Tuna (AAA) :Â The highest grade of tuna. Sometimes called sushi grade or sashimi grade.
Grade #2+ Tuna : The next grade of tuna following #1 grade. This grade is relatively new in US markets and has only been used since the 1980’s. The disparity between #1 and #1 was great so this median grade was created.
Grade #2 Tuna : This is the tuna of choice of many restaurants who don’t want to pay Grade #1 money for tuna dishes that will be cooked. Although not really considered sushi grade, some low-end restaurants may us it raw.
Grade #3 Tuna : This is a cooking grade, and the color has already turned brown or greenish.
