|Examine||Wow, this is a big fish.|
Members can use it with sweetcorn to make tuna and corn, which heals a bit more than regular tuna. The cost of tuna can be made to profit this way. It requires 30 cooking to cook, yielding 100 experience. Potato with butter can also be added with tuna-and-sweetcorn to create a tuna potato, yielding another 10 experience and a 220-LP-healing food.
Tuna is also often used to train the cooking skill. Factoring in the time/cost ratio, it is probably the most efficient way to achieve 99 cooking in free-to-play. Players will rarely burn tuna beginning at level 60 and will stop burning tuna at level 65 cooking (66 on fire). If you're a member you can use cooking gauntlets which makes you stop burning tuna at level 63. Cooking tuna yields around 100,000 experience per hour, where the maximum number of fish that can usually be cooked in an hour is around 1,000. If one buys raw tuna on the grand exchange and cooks them, it will result in a loss of 18 coins.
