Costa Rican Yellowfin Tuna
Tuna is an excellent source of heart-healthy niacin, free radical-scavenging selenium, and muscle-building protein. Some of the selenium is found in the form of selenoneine, which may be especially valuable in terms of its antioxidant properties. Tuna is also a very good source of energy-producing vitamin B6 and thiamin. In addition, it is a good source of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids, bone-healthy phosphorus and magnesium, and heart-healthy potassium. Tuna, a must for all menus.

Ever tried it? This is a great fish that is perfect for grilling or baking. The ferocious-looking wolfish gets its name from the sharp, protruding teeth it uses to feast on lobsters, clams and other shellfish. Found from southern New England to Greenland and the Barents Sea, the bottom dwelling cold water creature is primarily a bycatch of trawl fisheries targeting cod, haddock and other ground fish. Iceland, which has a direct fishery for the species, is the largest producer.
The trout supply seems to be stable. The variety of the cuts and sizes of this fish never cease to amaze me. There are many options to meet your menu specifications.
