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. Vital Choice albacore tuna is harvested by our neighbor Paul Hill, who quickly flash-freezes it on his small boat to preserve the fish at its peak of freshness. 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.
In addition to ample protein, albacore provides omega-3s in abundance, and substantial amounts of vitamin D.
