Optimally pure, tender, and sustainable
All Vital Choice albacore comes from a certified-sustainable North Pacific fishery.
The boats line-catch individual tuna, using the sustainable troll method, which ensures careful handling, safety for dolphins, and very minimal by-catch.
Thanks to its sustainable harvest, albacore (Thunnus alalunga) from this fishery is categorized as a "Best Choice” by the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
Thanks to its sustainable harvest and lower mercury content, albacore from this fishery is categorized as a "Best choice" by Monterey Bay Aquarium.
Vital Choice Albacore Tuna is sustainably harvested by our neighbor Paul Hill, who quickly flash-freezes it on his small boat to preserve the fish at its peak of freshness. For more about our troll-caught tuna, click here.
Because predatory fish such as tuna accumulate mercury over time, Paul provides us with younger, smaller Albacore tuna (15 lbs. or less) for optimal purity**. For more information on this subject click to our FAQ about mercury in tuna.
In addition to ample protein, Albacore provides omega-3s in abundance, and substantial amounts of vitamin D.*Note: Despite great care, bones or fragments may occur infrequently. Chew all fish well before swallowing.
**Our fishers do not target only the smallest halibut, tuna or other species, but these smaller fish comprise a portion of every boat's catch. Once at the dock the fish are size-graded. Most companies prefer larger fish because they yield more flesh per pound and are less costly to process. We purchase the smallest available fish, and spend more on the processing because we (and our customers) believe their superior flavor and optimal purity are worth it.

Pacific Albacore Tuna
Keep frozen at or below 0° F (-18° C). Vacuum-sealed fish held under these conditions should retain its quality for at least six to 12 months. Shellfish and lean white fish (halibut, cod) generally have a longer freezer life than fatty fish (salmon, tuna, sablefish).
NOTE: Seafood stored in frost-free freezers should be used within 3 months. Thawing
Thaw under refrigeration below 38° F (3° C). Use within 12 hours for best results. To quick-thaw, place unopened frozen package in cool water for 30 minutes or until fish is flexible.
Note: Despite great care, bones or fragments may occur infrequently. Because of this uncommon possibility, and to aid digestion, all fish should be chewed thoroughly before being swallowed.
Rinse fish quickly in cold, clean water. Cook in a medium-hot lightly oiled pan, under a broiler, or on the grill for 7-8 minutes -- or bake 12-15 minutes at 375 ° F -- until only only a small spot in the very center still appears translucent.
Remove fish from heat and let it “self-cook” another two to three minutes, until just cooked through to center before serving.
NOTE: It is perfectly safe and healthful to serve our fish raw or partly cooked, because flash-freezing has rendered it 100% sushi-safe.
Enliven your fish with healthful, flavorful seasonings such as Vital Choice Organic Salmon Marinade Mix or other herb-spice blends:
- Lightly coat or mist your fish with Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Macadamia Nut Oil, and rub on the seasonings of your choice.
- Or, add the seasonings of your choice to a little of Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Macadamia Nut Oil and marinate the fish in it the mix, refrigerated, for 30-60 minutes or overnight.
