I received this email a few moments ago and wanted to pass the information along to readers of this website. While this is a generic competition in the sense that it is not specific to sushi, I can think of a ton of ways to serve tuna in it’s raw form (and perhaps I’ll be submitting a few of these myself).

“I would like to bring to your attention our 1st Albacore Tuna Recipe Competition which will be launched to the public on September 1, 2007. This, worldwide, competition is designed to bring attention and profile to the Albacore Tuna Fishery- especially the BC-Canadian Albacore Tuna Fishery which takes place off our Pacific Coast.

The Competition includes a number of categories including: Best Appetizer, Entrée, International Recipe, Sandwich, and a special category for school children (Best Sandwich). In addition we have a category for Chef’s in training which carries a $1,000 scholarship prize. One other special category is a HEALTH CHECK Recipe- BC Albacore is a recognized product in the Health Check Program of the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.

We invite everyone to develop and submit your favorite Albacore Tuna Recipe. There is no cost to enter the competition. Judges will consist of professional chefs of the BC Chef’s Association. And all categories carry cash prizes.

Currently our Website http://www.canadianalbacoretuna.com includes details for Sponsor/Sponsorship Opportunities but soon will have additional information for the greater public including rules and links for recipe submission.”

In light of the overfishing of bluefin tuna stocks, it’s not a bad thing to highlight those fish that are not at risk. If you have any ideas, it certainly can’t hurt to send them off….
