Albacore Tuna

Hook and line caught, Washington Coast

There are many different kinds of tuna. Albacore tuna, which differs greatly from ahi tuna in color, is the tuna used for tinned tuna (95% of all albacore harvested is canned). Also, to quote Wild Pacific Seafood, "there are significant differences in methods of catching, sustainability, and the product itself." 

Of all the tunas, albacore is the lightest in color, it has the highest level of omega-3s, and it is among the mildest. Because of its light color, albacore is often called the other white meat. The phrase "chicken of the sea" was meant to call light-fleshed meat to mind. (Sorry Charlie!)

Albacore has a steak-like texture that makes it great for grilling and searing. It is listed by Seafood Watch as a "Best Choice." Moderate mercury level. Kosher.

  • 1 lb. for $17.00

Wild Striped Bass

Hook and line caught, East coast

We've caught a great price on wild striped bass this week. 

Forty-some years ago the East Coast striped bass fishery was nearly decimated by overfishing and pollution, but the fishery has since rebounded, under the careful management of the Interstate Fishery Management Plan for Atlantic Striped Bass. 

Compared to farmed striped bass, the wild variety we have selected is larger, richer, and slightly sweet in flavor. It has a firm, large flake, and it can be baked, grilled, steamed, and sautéed. If you like crispy skin, this bass has perfect skin for crisping. Seafood Watch rates it a "Best Choice." Moderate mercury level. Kosher.

  • 1 lb. for $21.50

  • 8 oz. for $10.75
