The flavour is king! Farmed tuna has an overly rich taste compared to wild tuna, stating that it has less umami and the quality of the fat on the meat is looser. Wild tuna, on the other hand, is fuller in its umami and has a more balanced and refined fat content. These differences have to do with the diet of the fish. In farms, the tuna are fed fats and proteins to increase their weight gain, while in the wild tuna eat squid and other fish resulting in different flavour profiles. Tuna is a migratory fish, so it naturally swims across great distances. Farmed tuna lives in a restricted quarter so they have less exercise thus flavour is also reduced.
