Description
 

Albacore (Thunnus alaunga) is a member of the tuna family. It is found in the open waters of all tropical and temperate oceans, and the Mediterranean Sea. The North Pacific albacore migrate to two regions of the Northeast Pacific. One area is off the northern part of Baja California, Mexico and the other is off the coast of Washington and Oregon. They are typically caught from May to November by hook and line. Unlike other tunas, our frozen albacore tuna loins have white meat and a milder flavor.

During albacore season local boats target small juvenile albacore. The young, football-shaped fish are very high in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids with very little mercury as compared to the older albacore and other tunas. In the marketplace albacore is commonly referred to as tuna, tombo, longfin tunny and canned white tuna. It is the only tuna species which may be marketed as "white meat tuna" in the United States. When prepared for sushi it is known as shiro maguro.

Another great offering from COP September 5, 2013
Reviewer: Stephan Persaud from San Diego, CA United States  
Picked up a packet of the albacore for sashimi
Took a piece and rolled it in black pepper and lightly seared it on each side. Served it with ponzu sauce alongside the uncooked piece. Hmmm yummy goodness.
So glad I live in San Diego and can drop in at COp to pick up fish when the urge hits.

Very tasty and very good texture September 12, 2011
Reviewer: Carlos from Columbia, MO United States  
Only reason I do not give 5* is because it was a bit smelly.  We ate it and nobody had any problems, so it was all right!

GREAT Albacore !! February 22, 2011
Reviewer: Mark Bartholomew from Alta Loma, CA United States  
We are Albacore fans.  We get Albacore everytime we go to Sushi. We ordered the two different grades and held our breath. Everything arrived on time, wellpacked, and frozen. We ate it the follwing day and it was better than 90% of the PREMIUM fish we had consumed.  You WILL be satisfied. We are loyal customers.

"strong buy" December 18, 2010
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Freeland, MI United States  
I strongly recommend. Great fish well packaged for the trip. I have not eaten a lot of albacore in sushi restaurants and couldn't remember what this was like, but this order made me a fan.
