Our fresh wild bluefin tuna sashimi loins are frequently used to make the highest quality maguro sushi in sushi bars. We are currently carrying a limited supply of bluefin and we expect to be in short supply this season. The wild blue fin is more seasonal than farmed. If you plan of searing/cooking tuna, we suggest that you order yellow fin tuna instead of the blue fin tuna. Blue fin has a much higher fat content, which produces a strong fish taste and aroma when cooked.
Blue fin tuna (Thunnus thynnus) are found all over the world, usually in deeper offshore waters. They can get as large as 6 feet and 300 pounds but they average 60 to 100 pounds.
Our fresh and live seafood products are as fresh as you can get because we purchase directly from reputable fishermen in California and Baja California who take great pride in providing the highest quality seafood. The seafood is caught and immediately iced or brought to our live tanks until you order. We package it with care, keep it cold in insulated boxes and ship it overnight with FedEx so that it reaches your door fresher than the vast majority of most supermarkets and restaurants.
Currently, we only offer Pacific Bluefin Tuna. While overfishing of Mediterranean Bluefin has greatly threatened the species, Pacific Bluefin Stocks are well managed and are not at risk for overfishing. Please read this material on Pacific Bluefin to gain a better idea of why we have decided to continue to offer Bluefin Tuna:
