In addition to ample protein, albacore provides omega-3s in abundance, and substantial amounts of vitamin D.
Optimally pure, tender, and sustainable
All Vital Choice Albacore comes from a North Pacific fishery in which smaller boats line-catch individual tuna using the sustainable troll method. This ensures careful handling of each fish, safety for dolphins, and very minimal bycatch.
Thanks to its sustainable harvest and lower mercury content, albacore from this fishery is categorized as a "Best Choice” by the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
Vital Choice Albacore Tuna is sustainably harvested by our neighbor Paul Hill, who quickly flash-freezes it on his small boat to preserve the fish at its peak of freshness.
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. These smaller fish comprise a portion of every catch, and are not targeted for harvest.
What People Say
"This tuna is amazing. It has loads of omega 3's (EPA+DHA) and the taste is smooth and delicious! Not too strong at all. Much much better than any other tuna I've ever had. Thank you so much for your quality and healthy seafoods that you offer.” – Jonathan Hibler
"Your canned salmon and tuna are out of this world! Thanks for fishing responsibly so that my family can enjoy your products. I've recommended your products to many many people in my practice and otherwise (I'm a physician).” – D. Bassett

"Best tuna ever!" Review: We can’t stop eating this tuna! Both my husband and I love it, it’s the best canned tuna we’ve ever had. It’s so flavorful!
"Superior albacore tuna" Review: Superior albacore tuna that I eat from the can! Super moist and flavorful. No need for ANY added ingredients. Try a can today you will not regret it.
"Best Tuna we have tasted" Review: We have purchased this tuna for years and it is the best and so versatile. But, sadly, no longer. It has gotten too expensive for our budget. Used to buy the 24 can 6oz size. Just too rich for our budget. Sad there is nothing that takes its place so Tuna will not be on our menu any longer. Thanks to for all the years of good eating.

The classics -- tuna salad in sandwiches or salads -- remain the best ideas.
Mayo-Free Tuna Salad
We like to replace mayonnaise with heart-healthy olive oil. Mayo is usually made with oils high in generally pro-inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids, which compete with the omega-3s in fish for space in your cell membranes. 4 sun-dried tomatoes (optional)
1/4 red onion, minced
12 ounces Albacore Tuna in water, drained
1 rib celery, chopped
2 tablespoons organic extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil, cilantro, or parsley leaves
Kosher sea salt and organic lemon-pepper mix
Cover the sun-dried tomatoes with hot water in a bowl. Set aside until soft, about 20 minutes, then drain, chop, and put in a medium bowl. To mellow the minced onion, soak it in cold water for 10 minutes, then drain it well, pat dry and add to the tomatoes. Add the tuna, breaking it into large chunks, along with the celery and toss to combine. Add the olive oil, lemon zest and juice, and basil and toss again. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper.
Serve on whole grain bread or mixed greens.
