“Tombo” means dragonfly in Japanese and refers to the very long pectoral fins of the albacore that can equal as much as 30% of the total length. Depending on size, its flesh ranges from whitish-pink to deep pink in color. It’s the lightest and mildest in flavor of all tunas.


Tombo is found in open waters of all tropical and temperate oceans. They are a highly migratory species, swimming long distances throughout the ocean. Temperature is a major factor in determining where Pacific albacore live.


Tombo is seasonally available
in significant quantities, but is scarce in the off-season. The peak in landings usually occurs from May through September.
