about baja aqua farms bluefin tuna

Ranched in the pristine waters of Baja, California, the "King of Seafood" is a light to medium fat, extra fancy, sashimi-grade tuna. Mexican farmed Bluefin is known for both excellent shelf-life of both its "akami" (red color meat) with "abura" (marbled fat). It has a wonderful combination of bright, red akami and buttery, mouth-watering o-toro and chu-toro and is much less expensive than alternative sources. Often found in the the Northern Pacific, this species of tuna ranges from Eastern Asia to the West coast of North America and as far south as the tropics. This meat can differentiate in color from deep, rosy-red to light pink, depending on its fat content.
