We have decided not to offer this item due to the overfishing of the Bluefin tuna. If you decide to buy this tuna, please buy only local USA line caught. Thanks to 4 decades of overfishing, it has been driven to just 3% of its 1960 or pre-longlining abundance - a decline of 97%. Help us save the Bluefin tuna.
Toro (Fatty Tuna). There are three kinds of tuna commonly used for sushi and sashimi, bluefin tuna (hon maguro), southern bluefin tuna (minami maguro) and bigeye tuna (mebachi). We always carry the very best, bluefin tuna. Fatty part of tuna is called "toro"in Japanese." O-toro" is considered the most prized and expensive part of tuna, like the tenderloin of beef. And there is a small part called "sunazuri" within O-toro. The texture of sunazuri is marbled with thin lines of fat. The look and the taste of sunazuri make it very special!
