Tombo is the name for Hawaiian albacore tuna, rated “Best Choice” for albacore tuna by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch. Giovanni’s Fish Market sources their tombo direct from one of Hawaiian best-managed fisheries, sustainably caught in the tropical waters using pole-and-line. This method of fishing targets smaller albacore with lower mercury levels, giving consumers the full health benefits of tuna.
Known for its clean, rich flavor, firm texture, and light pink color, tombo is perfect for sashimi, or lightly seared with soy sauce and ginger.
Product arrives fresh, use quickly.
You can store tombo in it's sealed packaging for up to a week in the fridge. Though we recommend eating as soon as possible for the full freshness.
