The Albacore, known also as the longfin tuna, is a species of tuna of the order Perciformes. It is found in temperate and tropical waters across the globe in the epipelagic and mesopelagic zones. These tunas are wild-caught in the waters of Canada, then immediately processed, cleaned, and frozen hygienically to maximize the freshness and optimize the texture. Albacore tuna has a mild to medium flavor profile with firm flesh and large flakes. Like other tunas, it has a “steak-like” texture, but less so than Yellowfin or Bigeye Tuna. It has a higher fat content which gives it a richness of taste compared to other kinds of tuna. Additionally, this Canadian Albacore is extremely high in protein, omega-3 acids, and anti oxidant selenium which support your heart and brain heath.
