The San Diego Bluefin Tuna
USA Wild Sustainable Harvest Method: Rod & Reel
Your Fishermen: Charles Saraspe & Greg Gershman
Description: Sustainably wild caught off the coast of California. Depending on migration, sizes normally range from 40lbs - 200lbs. However, due to the protection, prior exploitation, and means for conserving the delicacy of a fish, our rod & reel fishermen seek to harvest the mature, larger range, to allow the younger to grow and therefore conserve the species.
