    I didn't catch them, but they were caught locally here about 30 miles off the Oregon coast.

    Our local market buys an entire boat load from one of the local fisherman every year, sells at cost, this year they were $1.99lb

    You can buy whole fish from from several places for $2.50-4.00lb or loins for about $7

    Straight up canned tuna, olive oil & kosher salt. I opened up one the next day just to see how it turned out, best tuna sandwich your going to find, should be even better after it sits for a bit.

    Final cost was $2.50 for a half pint jar which is just enough for two nice sandwiches.
