Known as Tombo Ahi in Hawaii. “Tombo” means dragonfly in Japanese and refers to the long pectoral fins of the Albacore that can equal as much as one third of the total length.
Depending on size, its flesh ranges from whitish-pink to deep pink in color. It’s the lightest and mildest in flavor of all Hawaii’s tunas. It is suitable for many different preparations. As raw fish, it is softer than the other tunas and is, therefore, more difficult to prepare as sashimi.
Albacore is long-line harvested in the waters of Hawaii, Fiji and the South Pacific. Tombo Tuna is flown in directly to us on a daily basis.
The Albacore is the only tuna species used for white meat tuna. It has a moderate to full flavor and a firm texture. It is known as "The Chicken of The Sea" because of it's mild flavor.
Each Fresh and Frozen (Fin-fish item) comes in standard packs containing 2 pieces of either 6 or 8 ounce portions.
Buying Fresh Seafood Online from Anderson Seafoods has never been so easy, or tasted so good!
How to properly defrost frozen seafood: We recommend that all frozen seafood be defrosted by placing product in the refrigerator for 12 to 24 hours depending upon the density. Never force thaw a product by running it under water (hot or cold as it can cook the product). Not only does this reduce the flavor, but it is also a health hazard.
