    All Vital Choice albacore comes from a certified-sustainable North Pacific fishery.

    The boats line-catch individual tuna, using the sustainable troll method, which ensures careful handling, safety for dolphins, and very minimal by-catch.

    Thanks to its sustainable harvest, albacore (Thunnus alalunga) from this fishery is categorized as a "Best Choice” by the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

    Vital Choice albacore tuna is harvested by our neighbor Paul Hill, who quickly flash-freezes it on his small boat to preserve the fish at its peak of freshness. Click here to learn more about our sustainably caught tuna.

    Because predatory fish such as tuna accumulate mercury over time, Paul provides us with younger, smaller albacore tuna (15 lbs. or less) for optimal purity.

    Albacore nutrition

    In addition to ample protein, albacore provides omega-3s in abundance, and substantial amounts of vitamin D.

    What people say

    "I never see fresh albacore in markets, so I never knew it was so good. It's as good or better than the yellowfin and bluefin I've had in sushi bars."
    — Laura James, Boston, MA

    "UPS" Penny Miller on 07/09/2021 02:06 Review: Your product and customer service are great however UPS is absolutely atrocious it’s a guessing game when product is going to arrive.

    "Albacore Tuna Medallions" Todd on 07/03/2021 10:42 Review: Extremely fresh and firm after thawing. Absolutely no fishy odor. Cooks up beautifully either in pan, in broiler, and especially on BBQ grill. We recommend them completely!

    "Tuna Medallions" Mary Langrall on 06/11/2021 03:56 Review: I grilled them just a minute on each side with a bit of olive oil and a douse of coconut aminos and a light sprinkle of a seafood seasoning I had handy. My husband and I raved with each bite! Tasted like it had just come onto the dock! We will be ordering again and again!

  • Recipes
  • Serving/Care


    Keep frozen at or below 0° F (-18° C). Vacuum-sealed fish held under these conditions should retain its quality for at least six to 12 months. Shellfish and lean white fish (halibut, cod) generally have a longer freezer life than fatty fish (salmon, tuna, sablefish).

    NOTE: Seafood stored in frost-free freezers should be used within 3 months.

    Thawing instructions

    Thaw under refrigeration at or below 38 degrees Fahrenheit (3 degrees Celsius). Before thawing, puncture or remove packaging.

    For quick-thawing, place frozen package in cool water for approximately 20 to 30 minutes, just until contents are flexible. Once thawed, immediately cook or refrigerate (if refrigerating, puncture package). Prior to cooking, do not allow fish to reach temperatures above 38 degrees Fahrenheit (3 degrees Celsius).

    Serving Tips

    Rinse fish quickly in cold, clean water. Cook in a medium-hot lightly oiled pan, under a broiler, or on the grill for 7-8 minutes -- or bake 12-15 minutes at 375° F -- until only only a small spot in the very center still appears translucent. Remove fish from heat and let it “self-cook” another two to three minutes, until just cooked through to center before serving.

    NOTE: It is perfectly safe and healthful to serve our fish raw or partly cooked, because flash-freezing has rendered it 100% sushi-safe.Enliven your fish with healthful, flavorful seasonings such as Vital Choice Organic Salmon Marinade Mix or other herb-spice blends:

    • Lightly coat or mist your fish with Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Macadamia Nut Oil, and rub on the seasonings of your choice.
    • Or, add the seasonings of your choice to a little of Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Macadamia Nut Oil and marinate the fish in it the mix, refrigerated, for 30-60 minutes or overnight.
