Albacore Tuna is managed by the Ministry for Primary Industries using the New Zealand Quota Management System. Regular stocks assessment are conducted to estimate fishery stock size and numbers along with scientific studies. From these studies scientists can estimate future stock sizes and catch limits.
Preparation: Fresh NZ line caught Albacore Tuna loins are skin & belly off. The loins are suitable for many preparations on and off the grill, in the oven and even as sashimi. Albacore is often smoked. Care must be taken to avoid over cooking.
Availability: All year round while stocks last. Fresh stock is available during the season from March to August approximately.
Eat tuna for your health: Tuna is an excellent source of Omega 3 (approx 0.5g per 100g) which helps in lowering blood cholesterol and maintaining a healthy circulatory system. Tuna is also a good source of vitamin B3 used for the nervous and digestive systems, the skin and the manufacture of hormones.
Suggested wines: Tuna flavours are definite, and well accompanied by medium to full-flavoured white styles and some reds. A herbaceous semillon or vegetative sauvignon blanc will be pleasant with sashimi or grilled tuna.
