Living and working in Ireland’s premier fishing port for the last 30 years has led us to discover Ireland’s best kept secret. Albacore tuna. Our family’s love for this fish has driven us to source Irish caught Albacore tuna. We know you will enjoy this new taste experience as much as we do. Once tasted, always loved.
Swimming across the world oceans, Albacore Tuna is a migratory species. Always on the move, they come within reach of our fishing fleet for only a short period every year. At the end of August, this fish is caught in very large numbers for a few weeks. Moist and delicate, the soft pink flesh of the Albacore Tuna is different to that of other Tuna species. With their smooth, torpedo shaped, body, Albacore tuna are oceanic fish built for speed. They can travel as fast as 80km per hour. They are a member of the same family as Mackerel (Scombroides) and like them, they have to be constantly on the move in order to push water and oxygen onto their gills. Albacore Tuna occur in tropical and temperate waters of all the worlds oceans.
Just tried Shines Irish caught Tuna .. OMG !! Amazing .. Like no other Tuna Had a sample in Supervalu Lucan and took the ladies advice used the oil it comes in with some chili and garlic to heat served with noodles!! Fab Good Friday or any good day meal !!!
The best Tuna I've ever tasted and John was a gentleman to deal with. Even though he wasn't open for business he recommended his competition up the road. After tasting the tuna I was prepared to wait and see if the chips were up to much. The chips were demolished by us as quick as I've ever seen and the children said that they were "delish". Praise indeed. C'mon the boys in Blue
Finally had your Albacore Tuna last night: made a tuna and veg pasta and it was devoured by us two adults, a toddler and a baby so your market is wide and varied.
This is a great product go out and buy it, found this in Supervalu store in Blanch on Saturday, I cannot recommend it enough, it's so sweet and fresh even the colour is different to what you get out of a tin. I've told all my family and friends bout this.
I had some of this Tuna earlier today. Top quality. Looking forward to getting some more
Bought a can of your tuna in The Hopsack in Dublin, fantastic, I'm a new convert and I'll be buying more and spreading the word.
Ok I have to admit I've been very very stupid. I 100% did not like fish or any thing that came out of the sea. I found a can of your Irish Tuna in olive oil in the cupboard this afternoon which I bought a while back and I decided to give it a go. Well I'm totally Converted I have never tasted anything as nice (fish-wise) as this tuna before and I can only imagine what it's going to be like through other dishes. Sorry for only realising now how good your product is and it will certainly be on my shopping list every week.
