Albacore Tuna - 3 lb. Crew Pack
Fisherman’s Market Albacore tuna is wild and sustainably caught in British Columbia and is certified Oceanwise.
Albacore has a mild flavour with firm flesh and large flakes and is notably steak-like. It is less firm than Yellowfin or Bigeye tuna. It also has a higher fat content which gives it a richness of taste.
Our portions are boneless and skinless and our Crew Packs are individually portioned, vacuum sealed and blast frozen for your convenience.

Consume rare for maximum flavour, the raw flesh should be translucent and bright with a soft, slightly oily feel to it.
If cooking, marinate the tuna to avoid overcooking and to maintain a more tender texture.
Albacore is nutritionally potent which is why it’s called the multivitamin of the sea. It is a source of proteins and vitamins, particularly A, B and D. It is also rich in minerals like calcium, iodine, iron, potassium and phosphorus. It’s particularly remarkable for its linoleic and omega-3 content.
