I consider albacore to be:  Thunnus alalunga

And Yellowfin to be: Thunnus albacares


The common names of fish tend to vary depending on where you are.

Since there is no rating for Albacore you might want to assume it is the same as yellowfin.


is it so? ??)
alalunga is not on my swami, while yellowfin is on superfoods list.

thank you

Well, albacore is not on my list either. So if I decide to try tuna now and then, it will be yellowfin because of the mercury content of albacore. I had forgotten what I knew about albacore!

Before I did the SWAMI we ate Skipjack tuna regularly, but tuna is now a black dot for me.  I've been substituting wild caught pink salmon and it works well for everything except the Italian tuna-bean salad that we love.  So, occasionally we will eat the tuna-bean salad now that my 8 week "wash out" period has ended.  

We haven't eaten albacore for at least a couple years due to the high mercury level, and the only time I ever ate yellowfin was when we had sushi which was no more than once or twice a year.  

Things keep changing.

well will a sauna remove the mercury from the body?

also we are worried about the radiation now.  

anyone else concerned?

Well, it makes these sardines seem a lot more palatable!

thank you all of you for sharing.
that's the thing: i bought bluefin tuna before the "black dot discovery"!
now it's frozen.
i think that i'll give it to one of my friends ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

i thought i was soy intolerant!!!!
i mean ..i don't know anymore.
i ate tofu last time 1 year ago more or less for dinner, after 10 minutes i couldn't stay awake, so i went to bed at 8.30p.m.!!!
today i gave it another chance: my swami recommended it in every form possible, so i took breakfast with tofu and dandelium(steamed both), a bit of olive oil and a bit (more than a bit) of raw cilandro and chopped ginger.
well it seems all is well.

as ginnyTN said......."after 8 weeks washing out...Things keep changing".    

now i wonder, does it exist one symptom about soy intolerance that i can "feel" and have no doubt whatsoever?
is it supposed that i have to eat it in 8 weeks from now?
can i put it in my daily menu, or at least 2-3 times a week?
i wouldn't make any experiment with my digestion and/or stomach to find the right answer myself.
thanks a lot

Typically, reactions are individualized.  

Soy products can be very healing for A and AB, so it is usually good to start slowly and advance to the recommended portions per week over some time.  I doubt that you would have to wait 8 weeks, but I would start at maybe once or twice a week for 2 or 3 weeks.  If that works OK, then increase a bit more as desired...

Don't know about the sauna.  I'm more inclined to use cilantro coupled with chlorella.  Also the use of non-pacific seaweeds to bind and remove mercury.

There are different perspectives about the radiation dangers.  I don't see any way to know the absolute truth.  But I'm very cautious now.  I ate wild caught northwest salmon for the past decade.  Now, I haven't eaten it for several months.  I'm getting North Atlantic sardines.

thank you ABJoe, i'm going to do as you said.
i was trying to find some translation about american fish species versus italian fish and i found this site that i'd like to share with you all, i saw some very lovely recipes too (it's in english)
http://www.aglioolioepeperoncino.com/2011/03/italian-fish-seafood-names-translated.html

by the way i was looking for
mullet (is it red mullet? is it "triglia" in italian or what??)
sea bram                   (?)
drum                         (?)
these are all superfoods and i don't know what they are....
i can't help but wonder: fishes like sea robin, john dory, scorpionfish are not mentioned in my swami: may i consider them in the list "avoid-those-and-shut-up"?? ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
thank you
