Product Fact Sheet
Tombo (Albacore Tuna)
The Tombo Ahi caught in the vicinity of the Hawaiian Islands are usually over 40 pounds gross weight. Raw Tombo Ahi varies from whitish-pink in smaller fish to deep pink in larger fish. Usually the larger Ahi have greater fat content and can be used for sashimi. The flesh is often softer than other ahi and more difficult to slice into sashimi. The flesh becomes much firmer when cooked than when in the raw state. This fish is usually grilled, but other cooking methods will work - Tombo has a tendency to dry out quickly, so overcooking should be avoided.
