Albacore tuna is savored for its mild flavor. Ocean Naturals Albacore Solid White Tuna contains 100% Albacore tuna, packed in Italian olive oil which becomes infused with the Albacore essence, making a flavorful base for salad dressings or a scrumptious sauce for pasta.
Our Albacore tuna comes from pole & troll fisheries where the fish are caught one at a time, resulting in no bycatch, or impact to other non-target species. Most other albacore is caught by longline, which has high bycatch, including of endangered and threatened species like sharks and sea turtles. In addition, we only source from the Pacific Ocean, where Albacore are abundant.
Our Albacore tuna is from fisheries certified as sustainably managed by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC). The MSC standard is regarded as the most credible certification for seafood today. An independent non-profit organization, MSC developed science-based standards that contribute to the overall health of the world’s oceans by recognizing sustainable fishing practices and certifying the chain of custody that brings that fish to you. You can help, too. Just look for the blue MSC ecolabel to ensure you are making the best choice for our oceans.
