McAdam's Fish is a fleet of 8 boats that exclusively utilizes "pole and line" fishing methods to catch albacore tuna off the coast of the Pacific Northwest and New Zealand. McAdam's Fish is a pioneer in the sustainable albacore fishery and is currently the largest supplier of pole and line caught albacore in North America. Our annual catch is roughly 10% of total available supply.
Specialized, low impact pole and line fishing methods allow McAdam's Fish to catch albacore typically sized 12-15 pounds. These young fish have a very low mercury content and are caught without any bycatch.On-board bleeding and blast freezing to -30 degrees Fahrenheit ensures sushi grade quality from boat to plate.
All albacore caught by McAdam's Fish are certified "sustainable" by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), the gold-standard for sustainable seafood certification. Additionally, our Pacific pole and line albacore fishery is graded "Best Choice" by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch.
