Many reviewers say our canned albacore is the best tuna they’ve ever tasted.
Unlike most canned tuna, which is cooked twice — once before canning and once afterwards — ours is cooked only once, in the can.
This unusual practice yields exceptionally high omega-3 levels, fresh flavor, and firm texture, compared with virtually all other brands.
Vital Choice albacore tuna is caught by our neighbor Paul Hill, who flash-freezes it upon harvest to preserve its freshness.
Our albacore is individually line-caught in the North Pacific, using the sustainable troll method.
This ensures careful handling of each fish, safety for dolphins, and very minimal bycatch.
Accordingly, our canned tuna is certified sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC).
And all albacore from our North Pacific fishery is categorized as a “Best Choice” by the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
Predatory fish such as tuna accumulate mercury over time.
So our fisherman, Paul Hill, provides us only with younger, smaller albacore (15 lbs or less) for optimal purity.
These smaller fish comprise a portion of every catch, and are not targeted for harvest.
