Southern Bluefin Tuna (ThunnusMaccoyii)
Sourced from the Great Southern Ocean our SBT has a delicate flavour and is prized by the astute Japanese market. With soft to firm flesh and an attractive coarse grain it is an excellent medium flavoured flesh sought after by sashimi and sushi chef’s across the world. The low stress “Ike Jime” harvesting method is used in production to maximise flesh quality. Minimal handling of fish ensures the highest quality produce and increases shelf life.
