local albacore in SF?

Hey folks, wondering if anyone has seen albacore in any SF markets or grocery stores. Thanks!

  1. Haven't looked but call Tokyo Fish, Berkeley and ask.

    1. In the past, I have seen it at the fish monger in the Ferry Plaza building, and at Falletti's butcher. Took a glance at the coastside fishing club forums, and it looks like there is some tuna in the water off Noyo harbor up north, but we aren't having a big local tuna season yet like in some years past. Give the guys at Falletti a call, though.

      1. Yes, the fish place in the Ferry Building had albacore this week, and I think it said local.

        1. Don't know if you found it and yes I know it's not the city but I checked at Tokyo Fish and while I was standing in front of the seafood counter seeing no fresh albacore they posted at small bright yellow and red sign that said "fresh local albacore, first of the season, $9.99 a pound" at 1:20 today.
