Line-caught One Fish At A Time while they are consuming a quarter of their weight every day, building fat  reserves before winter, the line-caught Pacific albacore tuna caught by Seafood Producers Cooperative owner/members are much higher in healthy oils than those caught in nets and typically sold in cans at most grocery stores. 

We are a cooperative made up of families of hook and line fishermen. Many of these families represent 3 or 4 generations as Seafood Producers Cooperative members. Like the Halversens, Cori and Mark, who fish off the Washington coast. 

 Here’s a video that Cori made showing family life on the F/V Hans Halvor and what it’s like to catch line-caught albacore tuna. 

Available as sashimi-grade medallionscut from their top and bottom loins, or cooked with nothing more than a few grains of salt to make canned gourmet tuna perfect for tuna salad and tuna sandwiches, this tuna is as good as it gets.

Pop open a can and make a Niçoise salad or a tuna sandwich. Open up a vacuum pack of the medallions, sear ‘em for a minute or two on each side with a dash of salt and pepper, a side of greens, and you’ve got an easy, delicious and healthy meal. In springtime, there is no better or healthier meal than a albacore medallion cut and spread over two plates of greens with a dressing of olive and sesame oil with a dash of soy sauce. Simple, elegant and filling because of the rich oils of the albacore, we love these salads after bike rides, walks in the forests with our pooches, or on hot days out on the water.
