Fishwife's Wild-Caught Smoked Albacore Tuna is a sustainable (and more flavorful!) alternative to commercial canned albacore.
We love it for its versatility in salads, sandwiches, or eaten on its own, and for these reasons:
sourced from vessels participating in the MSC-certified British Columbia albacore tuna fishery
caught with rods-and-reelsin the Pacific Northwest by vessels that participate in the MSC Fishery; with this type of fishing gear, each fish is caught by one fishing pole, one at a time, to minimize bycatch and maximize quality control
smoked in small batches over natural wood, hand-packed, and canned in British Columbia
Materials: albacore tuna, golden yellow sugar, sea salt, garlic powder, curry powder, black pepper
Made by: Fishwife
Made in:USA and Canada
Specifications: 3.5 oz; packed in BPA-free cans

What is a fishwife? The term "fishwife" dates back to the 16th century, when it was used to describe the wives of fishermen who sold their fishy wares at the market. It later evolved into an insult for loud, foul-mouthed women.
