American Tuna's Sustainability Information
Where & How We Source Our Fish: We do not and will not source from fishing operations engaged in shark finning or other wasteful fishing practices. We will not source from companies associated with illegal operations or that have been listed on any blacklist, and we do not support practices such as transshipment at sea that help facilitate illegal activities. American Tuna prioritizes sourcing from healthy tuna stocks that are not overfished, are experiencing overfishing or are listed as vulnerable, threatened or endangered. In cases where an artisanal fishery employs sustainable fishing methods on a stock of concern, we will support improved management of those tuna stocks in question.
Labeling & Transparency: A core principle behind our products is the right of customers to know the source of the food they eat. American Tuna guarantees full traceability of all of its products. All of our albacore products are traceable to the vessel that harvested the tuna.
Local Initiatives: As well as sustainable and responsible sourcing of our fish, we pride ourselves in supporting coastal communities. The West Coast of the U.S. is reliant on this fishery to support the small ports and towns that make up this beautiful coastline. Supporting American Tuna is supporting the preservation of artisanal fishermen, micro-canneries, and fishing families.
Ocean Conservation: American Tuna supports the creation of marine reserves to restore depleted fish stocks and to protect ocean ecosystems.
