Albacore Tuna

Albacore tuna has been an important fishery for us since 1998. That was the year when the American canneries were unable to buy from the domestic fleet. A marketing crisis occurred. Vessels full of fish were in port from San Diego to Washington, but unable to sell their catch. Upon learning of potential interest for our fish in Spain, Bill Carvalho spent many nights telephoning and faxing potential buyers in Spain. After two weeks, two major canneries placed sizable orders and Carvalho Fisheries became the primary buyer of the fleet's fish for the rest of the season. Since then, the demand in Spain for our high quality, troll-caught Albacore has increased. We now export millions of pounds annually. Many fishermen have equipped their vessels with high capacity blast freezers. They have developed techniques of spiking, bleading and freezing their fish to make them acceptable to the most demanding customer base, the Japanese. The sashimi-grade fish is outstanding in mild flavor, clear-white flesh and firm texture.

We use only this grade for the following items:
  • Whole Fish
  • Vacuum sealed frozen loins
  • Vacuum sealed frozen medallions
  • Alder smoked loin chunks
  • Canned in 7.5 ounce can
  • Canned in fancy 6 ounce jar

Wild King Salmon

It is awe inspiring to contemplate the profound wisdom in the life cycle of the King Salmon. After leaving their natal streams, they spend two to three years migrating, feeding on anchovies, sardines, smelt and other bait fish. In the process, they collect within their bodies, all the minerals and nutrients available in the ocean and deposit them back into their original streams as they decay after spawning. These nutrients enrich the watersheds and contribute to the molecular diversity of the rich coastal soils.

What does this have to do with Carvalho Fisheries sale of Wild King Salmon? All of us can also benefit from this nutrient rich fish through consumption. It is a source of great enrichment to the physical well-being of our customers. We believe it should be part of everyone's diet.

Carvalho Fisheries has an extensive procurement range for Wild King Salmon. Our season begins in late March along the Oregon coast. We follow the boats down into California during the summer months. The Oregon Season continues all the way through November.

We Offer:
  • Dressed troll-kings
