Dock to Dish: A Seafood Blog.
Albacore tuna is a highly migratory fish found in many oceans around the world. Our wild-caught West Coast albacore (Thunnus alalunga) comes
mainly from the coast of Oregon and Washington, although it is also found off California. This coastal albacore is different from the mid-Pacific albacore,
also known as “tombo” in Hawaii and Fiji, in that it boasts a higher fat content. It is also one of the most environmentally sustainable sources of
seafood. It is approved by our partner in sustainability, Seafood for the Future, and considered a “Best Choice” by Seafood Watch.
West Coast Pacific albacore is a good substitute for bluefin due to its fat content from high levels of healthy Omega-3 oils. When prepared for sushi,
albacore is known as shiro maguro. Cooked, this fish provides a firm texture and moderate to rich flavor. Most chefs grill albacore, but it also works well
when seared, broiled, baked, sautéed or smoked!
