TASTE & FLAVOR: Ahi Tuna Collar is the part of the fish between the head and body that consist of oily fatty meat.
PREPARATION: Tuna collars are perfect for grilling or smoking, just make sure to cook them as soon as possible as they are an oily part of the fish and can turn faster than other parts.
FISHING METHOD: Longline
CAUGHT IN: San Diego, CA
BOAT: F/V Kaylee
FISHING SEASON: Year Round
HOW IT COMES: Each tuna collar is around 2-4lbs in size and comes whole, as is. Each collar is sold by the piece, not by weight.
STORING: If you choose to store your fish in the refrigerator we suggest consuming it within 3 days of delivery. If you do not plan on eating the fish within 3 days we suggest freezing it immediately after delivery to ensure freshness. Before freezing we suggest removing the fish from the bag, rinsing it with cold water and patting dry. Then place it in a vacuum sealed bag, airtight ziplock bag, or double saran wrapped before freezing. To defrost run cool (not hot) water over the bag for 5-10 minutes. Defrosting in the refrigerator is the second best option.
SUSTAINABILITY: Please refer to NOAA's FishWatch.gov for more information on this species fishery.
NOTES: For deliveries each pound is a weight estimate, it is not exact. We do our best to get it as close to the ordered weight as possible. Each cut of fish is about 1-2lbs in size and we suggest ordering at least 2lbs for the best cut of fish.
NOTICE: Consuming raw or undercooked seafood or shellfish may increase your risk of food-borne illness.
