The collapse of the Pacific Northwest salmon fishery is causing fishermen to turn increasingly to the albacore tuna fishery as an alternative source of income.

Improper handling of albacore can cause the fish to produce histamines, and this may cause consumers to fall ill with histamine poisoning.
