Our gourmet canned tuna comes from line-caught albacore tuna caught by our fishermen/owners, who have an unparalleled tradition of quality and sustainability. It is considered one of the healthiest fish on the planet, both for body and planet.
Albacore tuna is caught all over the world. But it is widely regarded among sushi chefs that the line-caught albacore tuna caught off our Pacific Northwest Coast is the best tasting and most nutritious. Caught when the juvenile albacore are following feed about 50 to 250 miles off the coast to bulk up for winter, these tuna are gorging on nutrient dense prey, eating a quarter of their weight each day in anchovies and sardines. Their oil content gets up to nearly 21% and their fattiness makes them delicious and loaded with heart-healthy oils.
So why are customers so excited about our canned tuna? What is so special about our canned tuna?
First, we start with hook-and-line-caught frozen-at-sea sashimi grade albacore tuna.
Being line-caught means a couple of important things:
The tuna we are catching are on hook and line are actively feeding juveniles. These younger fish are eating their weight everyday to build up fat reserves for a massive Trans-Pacific migration. They have 5 x the healthy fat and omega-3s than the industrially-caught albacore tuna typically found in grocery store tuna. This is a huge difference! Customers ask if we add oil to the canned tuna, but there is no need to add oil, as the tuna we catch is full of healthy natural oils from the tuna itself because they are caught in their prime.
Second, as is the case with our salmon, when the tuna are caught on hook and line, it gives the fishermen time to take care of the fish. In this case, once landed, the tuna are immediately blast frozen somewhere near 40 degrees below zero. It’s extra work, but we do things the right way because we take great pride in the quality seafood that we deliver to our customers.
Lastly, our canned tuna is canned the old school way. The canner specializes in a slow cook that results in a very nice finished product—perfectly cooked tuna with a few grains of salt and that’s it.
