Exporting frozen, pre-cooked tuna loin to Europe

Tuna loins prepared for the canning industry are individual tuna fillets gutted and cleaned — organs, skin, bones and black meat are removed — then cooked and frozen at -18ºC by blast or contact freezing. Most pre-cooked frozen tuna loins come from skipjack and yellowfin tuna. Europe has domestic tuna fisheries, but the European canning industry still sources a large percentage of its input from outside the EU, giving exporters potential opportunities to enter this large and interesting market.
