Albacore Tuna (Thunnus Alalunga)
Other names – Tombo Ahi (Hawaiian) Tombo (Japanese)
Our albacore is caught along the east coast of Australia. Its size varies from 10kg to 25kg.
Albacore has a white coloured flesh (sometimes with a hint of pink) and is commonly referred to as the “chicken of the sea”. Albacore can be eaten raw (sashimi) seared, grilled and fried.
Albacore tuna is an extra lean protein with a mild flavour that is low in saturated fat and high in omega 3 fatty acids.
