The Story of Oregon's Choice
In 1977 out at sea on his boat the F/V EZC, Captain Herb Goblirsch realized something.
In a small fishing community along the Oregon coast, the lifelong fisherman saw first hand just how much people cared about where their fish came from. In the day of is-it-canned-fish-or-is-it-cat-food, cheap overseas-caught tuna was the only option on the grocery store shelves. He knew people wanted more. He knew that he could do it better.
Using hook and line fishing methods and taking pride in how he cared for each fish, he became the pioneer of “from my boat to your table”. Dozens of people lined up at the docks to buy Herb’s prized albacore tuna, fresh from the boat. Before long demand grew so much that he started canning every fish that he brought to shore so that his friends and customers could enjoy high quality albacore tuna and chinook salmon year round.
As of January 1st 2020, Oregon’s Choice is now officially a 2nd generation family owned company. After 43 years Captain Herb has officially retired and his daughter SueAnna Harrison is now the proud owner of Oregon’s Choice Gourmet.
We are proud to say that we will always stay true to our promise of quality over quantity and always utilize sustainable fishing methods that protect our valuable natural resources for generations to come.
Low in mercury because we use hook and line at the surface of the water to catch albacore that are 5 years and younger, which limits the amount of time for mercury to accumulate (versus the major brands, who are using nets to catch 15 year old + albacore.) Our fish consistently tests significantly lower in mercury than the grocery store brands.
Best tasting, because we take care in what we catch to preserve quality from the moment the fish is caught. Raw, sashimi-grade albacore is packed in cans in their own natural oils. Major brands cook their fish prior to canning, then add oil or water to the can. This method not only results in inferior taste, but loses the vital Omega-3 fatty acids, the heart healthy good fats.
Wild caught in the USA from a sustainable fishery. Monterey Bay aquarium seafood watch list Best Choice! All of our products are wild caught (not farmed), using sustainable fishing practices that limit by-catch (so we're only catching what we intend to, and not harming other species) and follow strict guidelines to prevent overfishing.
