Wild-Caught Premium Tuna (Akami) (Thunnus albacares or Thunnus obesus) is sustainably and responsibly caught in the United States, Marshall Islands, and Panama. Upon introduction to your palate, notes of distinct bold flavor and a hint of light umami will wash over your taste buds which is complemented by a semi-firm texture. Wild-Caught Premium Tuna (Akami), called Kihada or Mebachi-Maguro in Japanese, is prepared as a sushi-grade Saku (Block) cut. It will arrive at your door fresh and ready to grill.
