Albacore Tuna reflects sustainable fishing at its finest. The fish stocks are healthy, no damage to the eco-system and there is ongoing effective management of Albacore Tuna Fisheries.
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: Cutlets and steaks can be cooked by grilling, barbecuing, baking, smoking, poaching or marinating and is often smoked. Grilled or barbecued, tunas are best seared and left rare centrally. Highlight with intense flavours such as charred capsicum, eggplant, balsamic vinegar and olive oil dressings on a bed of bitter greens and aioli, roasted garlic, and Japanese wasabi, soy and pickled ginger. Alternatively, prepare a baked dinner of tuna, with a herbed crust to seal in the flavour and prevent it drying out. Care must be taken to avoid over cooking.
Availability: The NZ Albacore Season is from March to August approximately. Frozen stock is available year round while stocks last.
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.
