PRX Notes Appearance of Hot Tuna

Hi friend of PRX,

No, not the music group Hot Tuna.

We mean tuna carrying radioactive remnants from the Fukushima disaster in 2011. Is it safe? Not clear, but the tuna we grilled over Memorial Day DID cook faster than usual.

Fishing for tuna on PRX? How about tuna tasting and fish labeling from America’s Test Kitchen? Is there a better way to catch tuna? Also, tuna ain’t tiny! Meet the Atlantic Blue Fin.

We’re hooked,
