Story of Origin

Our Yellowfin Tuna is caught using specifically-designed hooks and lines set at the depth where adult tuna swim and hunt for prey in deep waters of the Western Central Pacific Ocean. Modern technology is used by the fishers to keep track of the lines while making sure that no sharks or other fish are caught. The fish are immediately frozen on board the catch vessels - and later processed in frozen state using special machines  in order to maintain the "Sashimi-Grade" quality.

Good to know

Catching tuna in the open ocean isn't always easy. Without relying on nets that can surround the schools of tuna and other fish, well-managed pelagic longline fishing targets certain species. Our yellowfin tuna is certified by the MSC, which is your guarantee that the fishery uses non-destructive methods that are not environmentally damaging. Additionally, the traceability requirements ensure that your fish is what you expect it to be.
