Troll-Caught Albacore Tuna Basics
albacore tuna refers to 3-to-5 year old albacore harvested
by trolling jigs behind a slow-moving boat. Commercial
fishermen from North America have used this low-impact, environmentally
responsible fishing technique to harvest albacore for nearly
a century, while albacore fishing fleets from other countries
tend to use other fishing methods.
Major brand tuna is pre-baked in ovens,
then the meat is removed and packed in the can. This causes
the natural Omega-3 oils to be mostly removed and bleached
away, hence the addition of vegetable oil or water is added
before the canning process begins.
biological reasons, young troll-caught albacore have more
beneficial Omega-3 fatty acids than older, larger albacore.
Omega-3s are associated with reducing the risks or effects
of heart diseases, strokes, high blood pressure, cancer, arthritis,
lupus, and other diseases. Youll also find that because
of their natural Omega-3 content, the rich, satisfying, yet
mild meat from troll-caught albacore needs less mayonnaise
or other unhealthy fats in your favorite recipes.
|Our quality loins are hand filleted
and hand packed. The lid is then sealed, and the can is cooked
only once. All the natural value of the fish is in the can.
This is a natural solid pack, no water or oil is
added just a pinch of salt.
At the same time, processing techniques can be a significant
factor in the canned albacore Omega-3s content. The vast majority
of canned albacore sold by the big major brands comes from
older, larger albacore that has been cooked twice. This makes
it easier for assembly line workers to skin and de-bone large
amounts of tuna, yet most Omega-3s are unfortunately lost
in the process. Some fishermen are therefore offering their
own custom-canned troll-caught albacore that is hand-packed
and cooked only once in their natural juices to prevent the
loss of Omega-3s and flavor.
One should also realize that troll-caught albacore is not
always easy to find or even identify. The vast majority of
albacore available in the US today is the older, larger albacore
harvested by foreign fishing fleets; consumers interested
in trying troll-caught will need to specifically ask for it
in most restaurants, supermarkets, and at seafood counters.
That said, some retailers and restaurants in the Pacific Northwest
offer troll-caught albacore. Custom-canned troll-caught albacore
is also available by mail order and on the internet, and each
year fishermen in different harbors sell part of their catch
directly to the public.
