The Albacore is easily distinguished from other species of tuna by its long pectoral fin, often extending past its second dorsal fin.

Albacore are known as the "chicken of the sea" because of their high quality white meat. Most canned tuna fish sold in stores today is Albacore.

Like most tunas, they can be caught by either trolling artificial and live baits, or by chunking.
