NOAA Photo Library Image - fish7925

Cleaning albacore loins in preparation for canning this premium whitemeat tuna. The discarded dark parts of the loin go into canned pet food. Tunas and tuna-like fishes -- with average catch of about 285 million pounds during 1963- 1967 -- dominated the California fisheries at that time and accounted for nearly 60 percent of total fishery landings.
