Local Wild Bluefin Tuna?

estone888 | Jul 11, 2011 10:19 AM

Anyone else notice this on LA Eater this morning: "Starting tomorrow night and lasting for about a week or so, Water Grill is serving wild blue fin tuna caught off Catalina Island. We're told that "...although Bluefin Tuna are not strangers to this area, tunas this large (110 pounds) surprised the local sardine fisherman...A catch like this is very unusual and special because large Bluefin Tunas are often netted by huge vessels in the North Pacific...Tuna of this quality is typically sent directly to Japan and sold for tens, or even hundreds of thousands of dollars because of its sweet, sushi grade, deep maroon meat."

Anyone know anything more about it - specifically, is any of this likely to show up at local fish markets and if so, which ones?

Water Grill
