For a quality seafood experience and maximum freshness, we recommend defrosting and using as soon as possible. If the superfrozen fish is not going to be consumed immediately, it can be stored in a conventional freezer for approximately up to 2 weeks before losing quality (change color/oxidation).

Fresh, (not frozen) Tuna can be stored in the refrigerator for sashimi use immediately upon arrival. For raw consumption, eat within 1-2 days. Any longer, the portion will be searing, poke, or cooking grade. You can also freeze these portions immediately upon arrival and store for up to one week for sashimi use or 10 days for poke, searing, and cooking preparations (keep in mind that freezing sashimi grade fish does slowly diminish the quality of the meat as the cell membrane is not well maintained in conventional home freezers). Rule of thumb-- eat it while it's fresh!


Place superfrozen product in cold water for 15 to 30 minutes, until thawed. Cut and enjoy within 24 hours.

Our Pacific Bluefin Tuna "Imperfect Cut" are the sections of the Bluefin Tuna we couldn't cut perfectly square... hence, they're cut imperfectly. These cuts are highly recommended for any recipe that calls for Bluefin Tuna chopped, cubed, diced or ground. Take advantage of our low prices on these delicious cuts!

Riviera Seafood Club's prized Pacific Bluefin Tuna (Hon Maguro) are responsibly ranched in Baja California, Mexico by Bluefiná and known around the world for it's rich, meaty flavor and delicate features.

With every bite of this delectable sushi-grade fish you are greeted with a distinct medium-full flavor shifting between light to rich umami, complemented by a sophisticated texture ranging from soft to semi-firm with the skin-off and no bones.

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

Yes and no. Yes, you can refreeze it for a future cooking preparation. No, if you plan on using it for raw preparation.

Yes! We suggest that most super-frozen products may be stored in a conventional freezer for up to 2 months upon usage.

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.

Loved the imperfect cut! Had some trouble with FedEx delivery but the excellent customer service of RSC quickly resolved the issue.

Everything is so delicious!

We had Otoro, Chutoro, Salmon, and Uni for our Sushi party.
They were very fresh and taste great.

Perfect Blend of Flavors

I loved this combination of imperfect cut tuna!! It tastes and feels like something between Chutoro and Akami. It is buttery and clean at the same time. I will order again!

Imperfect Cut Bluefin

It’s bluefin tuna so it’s definitely delicious, although it does seem to be very “wet” after thawing. These pieces are great fair making rolls, stacks, basically anything that requires chopped or diced tuna.

Good deal

Reasonable price and good quality

Great flavor, but they are imperfect

I have had 2 one pound portions of this product so far and I will order again. The quality is excellent but you don’t know exactly what you will receive. Small scraps mixed with connective tissue pieces and some larger pieces. These are good for making sushi in rolls, spicy tuna salad, topping rolls etc. I use these along with the akami portion to make additional food items. From the pictures, I thought that they were just off angles but you get a mix of stuff including some bones and connective tissue pieces.
