Part II: F/V St. Jude – A Taste for Tuna

Joe Malley has reeled in a lot of different fish in his over 40-year commercial fishing career, but tuna has a special place in his heart. And on his plate. “When I’m fishing halibut, the last thing I want to see on my plate is halibut,” he said. “If I’m fishing salmon, I don’t want even a beautiful King salmon.

And tuna can be incorporated into dishes in so many ways; for instance, you can stir fry it just like chicken. For Malley, his wife Joyce, and their five-person crew, tuna is a way of life.
