Toro is the term for the fatty part of the tuna, found in the belly portion of the fish. In sushi bars the world over, bluefin toro is among the most prized cuts. With its delicate flavor and buttery, melt-in-your-mouth texture, it is reserved for the highest-quality sashimi and nigiri sushi.
Our farmed Atlantic bluefin toro is sourced from in and around the Eastern Atlantic and Mediterranean. It is Super Frozen to naturally preserve its freshness and exceptional pink hue. The deep freeze method results in very little moisture loss when thawed and uses no added chemicals or preservatives. Each hand cut portion is 5 oz and comes skin on. Please note that cuts may be square or rectangular in shape.
Aquaculture practices in the Atlantic and Mediterranean, include the capture-based farming of bluefin, also referred to as tuna ranching. Generally, tuna of various sizes are wild-caught then transferred to marine-based pens where they are fed until time of harvest.
The sustainability of wild Atlantic bluefin (Thunnus thynnus) stocks is a top priority for management organizations. Historically the species suffered overfishing, but its population has gradually recovered. In 2006 the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) adapted a 15-year recovery plan. Ongoing stock assessment, control measures and quotas continue to enforce the sustainable management of this important fishery.
