Toro is the term for the fatty part of the tuna, found in the belly portion of the fish. Especially prized by sushi chefs and sushi aficionados, toro presents pink to white in color with a rich, buttery taste. Because of its high fat content and distinctive flavor, toro is always best enjoyed raw. Our sashimi grade bluefin toro is hand cut in house from whole ranched Bluefiná Pacific bluefin tuna (Thunnus orientalis). This type of aquaculture method starts with the harvest of smaller wild-caught tuna during a short time of the year. Fish are then transferred to ocean pens off the coast of Baja California where they are fed until time of harvest, resulting in a much higher fat content that strictly wild tuna. Each bluefin toro portion is approximately 5 oz each and Proton Frozen to preserve its color and texture with out any additives. Note that certain species, like tuna, naturally turn brown once exposed to air or if stored in a traditional freezer. Proton Freezing technology slows this process but does not prevent it. For best results, we recommend placing proton frozen tuna in the coldest part of your freezer and storing for no more than 5-7 days. To defrost, place the packaged frozen portion in cold water for 15 to 30 minutes, until thawed. Remove from packaging, then pat dry, and enjoy. Alternatively, remove frozen fish from packaging, wrap with a paper towel and place in the refrigerator to defrost overnight.

Bluefiná is a delicacy of meticulous standard. It is what a bluefin lover would expect of only the highest quality sashimi grade bluefin.
