- Albacore are the only tuna allowed by the Food and Drug Administration to be marketed and sold as white meat. Because of this distinction, albacore is the most prized tuna meat in the United States.
- Albacore is considered inferior to other tuna meat in Japan for the exact same reason. Only some members of the billfish family (marlins, swordfish) and the mako shark are faster. Albacore have been recorded going over 55 knots.
- Close to 200,000 tons of albacore are harvested every year, most coming from the Pacific Ocean.

The current Delaware Fishing Guide lists all of the tidal, Inland Bay and open water bay access areas and the amenities available. Categorizing a site as "accessible" does not imply the site is or will be totally accessible to every person with a physical impairment. It is ultimately the users responsibility to decide what conditions they can manage with their physical limitations. Please call Charles Lester to request a copy .
