If you like to eat tuna, then there is a very good chance you have tried albacore. Known as “chicken of the sea”, different species of albacore can be found all over the world. Here in Santa Cruz, California we have to work hard to catch our albacore. The albacore typically can be found between 35 to 60 miles off our coastline, which means a lot of boat time in typically very windy seas. This t-shirt honors all of those sport fisher people who have powered it out and put in the long hours to bring home their prized fish to feed their family.
My t-shirt line is called “uroko”, meaning “fish scales” in Japanese. Uroko celebrates the people who find peace in the ocean waves, food and sport from the creatures that live within our planet’s fresh and salt waters, and camaraderie from the togetherness that we share in experiencing these wonderful gifts that we have a chance to interact with. Thank you for supporting my passion of making fun t-shirts.
