With a highly evolved circulatory system, albacore are able to swim great distances and reach speeds of up to 50 miles per hour. Albacore is an abundant species and a particularly healthy fishery in the Pacific Ocean. The fishing season for this species begins mid-summer and can run through the early fall. Albacore are landed in northern California, Oregon, Washington and into British Columbia as well.
Culinary Tips: Highly versatile: Can be enjoyed raw, grilled, or smoked.
Catch Method: Longline or Trolling.
Sustainability: Albacore stocks are considered healthy in the Pacific Ocean and the fishery produces relatively low bycatch compared to other tuna species. U.S. tuna fisheries overall are more sustainable than those in other countries because of the tougher regulations and effective monitoring systems we enjoy.
