Whats the most popular seafood item that Tobago Wild offers?
At first wahoo sold the best because it was an easy, fairly well-known, eco-sustainable substitute for many swordfish recipes. Since we began marketing Tobago’s blackfin tuna, it has far surpassed wahoo’s popularity. Blackfin tuna is the smallest of the true tunas (which include bluefin, bigeye, yellowfin, and blackfin). It rarely grows past 25 pounds and is only found in the south-western Atlantic Ocean. While the bigger tunas have been heavily fished around the world, blackfin tuna has been largely ignored. In Tobago, all of the blackfin tuna we procure has been caught using hand-lined fishing methods, meaning fishermen literally pull single fish in hand-over-hand leaving the population healthy and almost unaffected. Tuna aficionados looking for a sustainable choice have discovered blackfin’s beautiful coloring and delectable texture. Health conscious consumers love the fact that Tobago Wild blackfin tuna contains only 0.048ppm of methylmercury, putting it 95% below FDA action levels
