Tuna

Know your product

Tuna is a very fast oceanic fish, living "between two waters ": at the surface of the water and at depths of up to 1,000 meters. It’s one of these tireless migratory fishes. Its size can reach over 4 meters and its weight over 650 kg.
Tuna is a semi-fatty fish, rich in proteins, minerals and trace elements. Its flesh is pinkish, thick and tender; its pronounced taste is unique.

Our range includes numerous varieties of Tuna:
- Thunnus Alalunga, White Tuna or Albacore Tuna, fished in Reunion Island or in Tahiti.
- Thunnus Albacares, Yellowfin Tuna, from the Maldives Islands, Reunion Island or Ecuador
- Thunnus Obesus, Bigeye Tuna, fished in tropical waters.

How to buy

The freshness of Tuna is essential, especially if you wish to serve it raw: fresh Tuna should release a slight smell of cucumber; it has to be tight and soft. Avoid Tuna that looks dried out.

how to keep

Fresh Tuna can be kept for only 2 days in the fridge.

Tips

If you did not use up all of your Tuna, store by placing each leftover piece of tuna in a jar, add some olive oil, garlic, Espelette Pepper and thyme, close the lid and do not open for a few days.
