PACKAGING & MANAGEMENT
Each 10lb case includes 25-30 of our beautiful now 6oz ruby red portions.
This is NOT MSC labeled tuna. Why not? Looking at our sources MSC labels would have cost an additional 30% more, so I’ve found what I think is a good compromise. The unfortunate side of the MSC label is that this cost gets passed directly to the consumer and I’ve seen tuna sales decrease as customers have been unable to afford the premium. I want to support fisheries that are moving towards an MSC certification so I found a source that has an active Fishery Improvement Program (FIP) currently at stage 5 (the final stage consisting of reviewing their FIP for its impact). I consider this a compromise because while this source is NOT yet MSC, they are FIP ID number 197 and actively working on this and have an “A” rating at FisheryProgress.org.
*If you plan to cook the tuna then it will be good for 3-4 days in the fridge before it starts to lose it’s fresh zest. When you defrost in fridge cut a hole in the package to let out the excess water. This prevents your fish from getting too soft while thawing. If you plan to eat it as sushi, then you must consume the thawed fish within a couple days for peak freshness.
