Buyers checked the quality of ahi at United Fishing Agency’s Honolulu Fish Auction at Pier 38 on Friday. Generally, the redder the color and oilier the feel mean a higher quality of fish. After being tagged with the vessel’s name and weighed, the fish are taken into the warehouse on pallets and lined up where auction buyers representing wholesale, retail and restaurant sectors place their bids. It is the only fresh ahi auction in the U.S.
