Albacore, a fish relative of tuna, are more selective and their meat is light, firm, and tasty. It can be eaten in a variety of ways, and offers a finer texture for better preparation. Albacore is almost never used for cat food, except maybe the byproducts of the tasty morsels, selectively chosen for human consumption.
