Excellent vid there Al.
Makes me feel ashamed for using them as bait.
However I used trevalky as bait, now it's sashimi of the best kind, we are always able to grow and learn.

Got to have respect for the skills, techniques, tools and care of there food.

Got to get me those knives and learn those skills.

Well said Mattoo. Next one I catch will end up as sashimi. Also love trevally sashimi/kokonda/ceviche.

I have no first hand experiences of preparing and / or eating skipjack tuna however the vid showed no footage of the fish being bleed as one would normally do to a tuna you planned to eat.    
The final result looks good for a product that perhaps was not caught with the intention of being served as sashimi or sushi. Bleeding the fish immediately after capture I imagine improves it's edible qualities.

From experience, any fish making it to the Japanese domestic market for consumption would have been very well treated from the point of catch. So the intention is to present it in the state that would be fit for sashimi.

Keith the point I was trying to make (perhaps poorly) was that the skipjack may have been destined for the canning market rather that the street market and that may have been why it didn't appear to have been bleed.
I agree with your comment though, fish destined for the sashimi market are treated with great respect and care.

Fish Addict,
True you couldn't see it.
It would never be for the canned market on a Japanese boat.
Or Japanese intended market.
It would of been bleed prior to the first shot of them going on the conveyor.

The question for me is if they used as well iki ame, think I got that right.
It's the wire down the spine.

Now that technique I'd like to learn.
Matt Watson has been done a vid on a snapper.
It's a huge improver of meat.

Now a teaching hands on seminar would be a goer.
I'd like to learn that skill for a variety of fish.

Who knows Matt Watson to ask him if he'd do a hands own teaching seminar.

Mattoo the fish on the conveyor show no signs of being bleed by making a cut slightly back from the pectoral fins. Perhaps they are bleed by some other means but there appear to be no visible incisions into the fish that I can see. Also when the head was removed I thought there was more blood around than what I anticipated.

Yeah I know what you mean.
Would be good to know because that meat when filleted did look like it had no obvious strong bloodline.
