Oregon’s Choice is the Official Gourmet Albacore of the GORE-TEX™ TransRockies™ Run. High in healthy Omega-3 fatty acids and a great, light protein choice on the go, tuna is a great source of energy for endurance runners and Oregon’s Choice is a perfect fit for this year’s competitive appetites.
A family-owned Newport, Oregon fishing business serving the finest quality, gourmet canned albacore tuna, salmon, crab, sturgeon, oysters and shrimp, Oregon’s Choice fishery has received the coveted Marine Stewardship Council certification as eco-friendly and sustainable. It has one of only 26 vessels worldwide certified to deliver high quality MSC certified (www.msc.org) albacore tuna for consumers through the American Albacore Fishing Association (www.americanalbacore.com). The fish are hand caught (no nets) and are naturally low in mercury, and much healthier than farm raised fish.
“Oregon’s Choice Gourmet has a reputation as the the finest albacore in the U.S. and we are pleased to offer this incredibly healthy, sustainably-harvested product to our competitors,” said Aaron McConnell, TransRockies director of events.
