Riviera Seafood Club's Fresh Albacore ('Binnaga Maguro' in Japanese) is a staple to the seafood diet. Our Albacore tuna are long-line caught in the wild, and then offloaded locally in California.

Albacore is typically a more lean tuna, often seared lightly or cooked quickly so as not to dry out.  A simple fish, easy to approach and with a hint of light umami to wash over your taste buds, complemented by a semi-soft texture.

Each piece is perfectly cut as a Saku (or Block), individually packed and shipped using overnight delivery to your door.

Time your defrost process to a couple of hours before your meal for the optimal outcome.

The United States is late to the game... Many countries, including Japan, depend on this technology to assure minimal loss in quality and maximum gain in shelf life.
