Tuna

Tuna is a special fish. The ancient Greeks called it The Rusher - a salute to its great speed. Its flesh is dark because it achieves that speed via a different, more powerful muscle structure compared with other fish. Our main tuna lines are from yellowfin tuna caught by sustainable pole and line fishermen in the Maldives from where it arrives by airfreight in no time. Air dried tuna, or mojama, and delicious smoked tuna are also in our lineup. And that £10 a tin Ventresca is to die for. Fishopedia article
