I have no worries. I buy my tuna whole and prep it myself. Local albacore from Steveston docks and from a few wholesalers.

I think we should do a mini meet where we'll learn how to cut and gut tuna.

They have it in Japan and they have it here too. I've never been to Japan, so I don't know if the horse sashimi I had here was not actually dog sashimi.

Who else is in?

We/you need:

really sharp clever
rubber mallet
gloves (tuna stinks like a mofo)

We should do this close to where people live, 'cause the fish comes flash frozen at sea (at least it should be). We need to cut the tuna while it is semi-frozen. Head chopped off first, then tail. Next, the tuna is cut along lateral line to the backbone on one side. Then the other side is cut to the backbone. You should now be able to separate the fish into two halves, including the backbone. The backbone on the tuna is on the high side and you can see it after the head is chopped off.

Once you have the top half and the bottom half separated, you split each half into halves again, leaving you with quarters.

At this point, you can refreeze the quarters until needed. Leaving the skin on preserves the flesh from freezer burn. Or, you can take the guts out while still frozen (recommended). You need strong fingers to pull the internal organs away from the rest of the fish while frozen.

You need to do all this before the flesh thaws. It's still at a frozen state, just not rock hard. This way, you can safely freeze the flesh again so you can enjoy sashimi for up to a year or so. Unless you are like me and go through at least three fish a year, LOL. Average size of albacore in our waters are between 15 and 25 pounds. The larger the fish, the more meat and less waste (percentage wise).

The alternative to all this is buying the tuna already cut into quarters. Yamato Trading, one block west of Fujia on Clarke Drive has the lowest price on quartered albacore tuna. Albion Fish and other seafood suppliers even have fully prepped albacore. Expensive, but no need to mess around with fish heads and guts.

Anyway.............. too much time on my hands. Watching the Canucks vs Stars game.

in the u.s sushi tastes like horseshit, even at the most expensive restaurant, whereas in vancouver a typical ayce spot is even decent. so really curious about canadian stats compared to these u.s stats

They have horse sashimi here as well. Manzo occasionally has it on special. Seto Sushi (Alexandria Rd.) has it on their regular menu.

It's fucking fantastic. Quite a lot better than beef.

There was a similar study done at local fish n' chips places and supermarkets, I seem to remember, in the paper a couple years ago, misrepresenting other fish as cod.

Actually I ate some last night. Its delicious, well marbled, but reasonably lean.

Its called basashi. Most popular in Southwestern Japan, but you can find it almost anywhere.
