How to Fillet a Tuna

This bonus video that came out of the story we filmed about West Coast albacore at a micro-cannery along the Oregon Coast. This is behind the scenes impromptu shooting of a veteran fish filleter, part of the team that cuts up and cleans the fresh-caught fish that arrive from the fishing boats.

Narrated by cannery owner Mark Kujala, of Skipanon Brand Seafood, he describes the step by step process on how to fillet a tuna as we watch Shirley Tischer slice the albacore in real-time action. Unbelievable, how fast and sure she carves up that fish!

Check out the story Albacore Tuna: A Micro-Cannery Flourishes, which features Mark Kujala and his small family run cannery in Warrenton, Oregon.
