Product Information

Albacore makes great sushi - in sushi bars, it's usually pricier than yellowfin. The fillets or loins cut from the fish are the perfect starter-shape for sashimi - needing minimal trimming. Tataki  - lightly searing the surface - is often applied to alabacore sashimi, with a result beyond scrumptious.

Back pieces are the shape of a stumpy pillar. The belly as smaller flats. Both are really quite soft and if you don't have a SUPER SHARP knife, you might shred them. So take care.

Sustainability - our rating 8/10

Our albacore tuna are caught from a sustainable fishery in the North East Pacific Ocean. They are caught using hook and line, a very selective, non-destructive fishing method. This fishery has been purposefully landing less than the maximum sustainable yield to manage the fishery and positively grow the albacore stock.
