Fresh from late spring to late fall and frozen year-round.


U.S. wild-caught from Washington to California, Hawaii, American Samoa, and on the high seas.


Mild, rich taste.


Firm, steaky, with large, moist flakes.


Light beige to almost brown when raw but turns off-white after cooking. Albacore has the lightest-colored meat of all the tunas.
