Albacore Tuna is one of the main fisheries of the South-west coast’s economy and is one of the species of greatest commercial interest. Shines' fishermen catch the tuna using traditional methods, coupled with the traditional preparation guarantees their quality and freshness, providing maximum flavour and exquisite taste.
Albacore is one of the smaller species of tuna, reaching sizes somewhere between the skipjack and yellowfin. Like all tuna, Albacore is a rich source of complete protein, selenium and vitamin B-12. Their soft pink flesh, however, is more moist and delicate than that of many other species of tuna. In addition, Albacore contains significantly more Omega-3 fats. Omega-3s normalize and regulate cholesterol levels and greatly reduce the risk of heart disease.
Furthermore, all of our tuna is hand-filleted and hand-packed in olive oil. Olive oil, like omega-3, has been shown to help prevent heart disease, as well as provide anti-oxidants that keep your hair and skin hydrated and healthy.
