A tuna fish sandwich. Is there an easier lunch? Well, okay, PB&J probably takes that title, but tuna is still an impressively easy, economical, crowd-pleasing option. And yet there is overfishing to worry about, not to mention mercury levels in such large, predatory fish. Troll-caught Pacific albacore tuna to the rescue!
Troll-caught Pacific albacore tuna remains a sustainable (and delicious) fishery, recommended by Seafood Watch. The small, surface-caught tuna caught by trolling have low mercury levels, plus Pacific albacore tuna has the highest level of Omega-3s of any tuna.
I've put together a list of sources for sustainable tuna. These fishermen and small businesses sell troll-caught Pacific albacore tuna from West Coast fishermen as fresh steaks or in small-batch processed cooked-in-the-can delicious canned tuna that will blow your socks off. Tuna salad - and sandwiches - just got more interesting.
