Albacore Tuna

During their summer migration, Albacore feast on the abundant schools of anchovies and sardines in the coastal upwelling, which results in them being a healthy choice with a high nutritious oil content. This is the perfect time in their life cycle for local fishermen to bring in a catch.

Oregon Albacore, in particular, stands out as a premium choice due to their rich flavor and moist texture, attributes rarely found in larger albacore caught elsewhere around the globe. Oregon Albacore possesses the highest amount of beneficial Omega-3 oils among tuna varieties, making them exceptionally good for your health!

Albacore caught off the coast of Oregon is listed as Best Choice by the Monterey Seafood Watch, because the population is healthy and overfishing is unlikely. Feel good knowing you’re making the best choice for your family!

Fisherman's Market Canning Prepping Mason Jars

Canning Albacore Tuna

Canning Albacore is easy and may be canned either pre-cooked or raw. For pre-cooked method, adding water or oil to jars is necessary (leaving 1-inch headspace). For processing raw tuna, there is no added fluid necessary—the tuna will produce its own healthy Omega-3 rich juices when canned. Whichever method you choose remember to always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for your pressure canner when processing.

For more information on how to safely process canned tuna, visit the National Center for Home Preservation.
