Tuna Tombo (Thunnus alalunga)

The word ‘tombo’ means ‘dragonfly’ in Hawaiian and describes the very long pectoral fins that the fish have. Tombo and albacore tuna are the same species of fish but albacore is caught in the pacific during the summertime whereas Tombo is caught year-round in tropical waters. We recommend pan searing or grilling this fish, leaving the center rare to avoid overcooking.


Fisher people on daily fleets use longlines to catch this tombo. We source our primary supply of Tombo from Fiji but we occasionally supplement this with Hawaiian fish. This fish is currently unranked by the Monterey Seafood Watch Program.

Our Mission.
