Albacore are unique as they are comprised of a white meat and known by many as the ‘chicken of the sea’. Just because their flesh is a different colour, doesn’t mean the method to take care of them is any different. Albacore are distinct as their pectoral fins are elongated and can be nearly the length of the fish.
Where do they go to breed?
In the South Pacific, albacore spawn in the western and central region between 10° S and 25° S and to 140° W during a relatively protracted spring/summer season.
Spawning occurs in small aggregations during the summer. The peak spawning period in the southern hemisphere occurs in summer. Eggs are released in at least two batches.
