Albacore Tuna Box
Rich, delicate, and ever-so-subtly sweet, albacore tuna pairs perfectly with bright flavors. It shines in rare preparations or with a quick sear to preserve the meat's flavor and texture. Think poke with an umami soy-based sauce, seared with chimichurri, or wrapped in a homemade sushi roll.
Albacore is the only species we offer that isn't caught off Alaska's coast but in the North Pacific near Washington state’s coast. We source your albacore from trusted hook-and-line fishermen-partners with the Seafood Producers Cooperative.
This fall we harvested extra albacore but had an unexpected shipping delay, which means we now have albacore to offer in the Freezer. Don't miss this opportunity to enjoy these limited boxes of albacore.
Limited inventory. Available until sold out.

What is “the Freezer”?
Although we try our best to forecast exactly how much of a season’s harvest to purchase from our small-boat fishermen, the community supported fishery model has some natural variability to it. It’s both an art and a science to decide how much to buy and how to distribute the catch as evenly as possible among share members. More important and ultimately, species availability is dependent on the health of the fisheries themselves.
When we have a surplus of delicious premium quality seafood after the season’s 4- to 5-pound share boxes are packed, we “stock” the Freezer and make its bounty available to our members or folks who want to try before they buy shares.
We also have unique and seasonal opportunities to purchase additional seafood from our fishermen or trusted partners (but not necessarily enough for all the shares). When we do, we’ll add them to the Freezer for you to order.
Is this the same fish I get in the CSF?
Well, yes and no. The seafood in the Freezer is of the same premium quality from our fishermen or trusted partners. However, not all items in the Freezer will be available in monthly CSF shares and vice versa.
Can I just order one type of fish?
Sometimes we will offer single species boxes in the Freezer in addition to mixed species boxes. We are not currently customizing any of our Freezer boxes.
Do you offer discounts when I order more than one box?
Members enrolled in the 2021 CSF season will receive 10% off Freezer seafood boxes. This applies to ordering one or many. If you are not a member, we encourage you to become one, as access to special discounts and sales are another great membership perk!
