Canned Wild Pacific Albacore Tuna

Where to Buy Sustainably Caught, Small-Batch Canned Tuna


Troll-caught Pacific albacore tuna remains a sustainable fishery, recommended by Seafood Watch. The small, surface-caught tuna caught by trolling have low mercury levels, plus Pacific albacore tuna has the highest level of Omega-3s of any tuna. Add to that this little fact: it's delicious.

These fishermen and small businesses sell troll-caught Pacific albacore tuna from West Coast fishermen as fresh steaks or in small-batch processed cooked-in-the-can delicious canned tuna that will blow your socks off. Tuna salad just got more interesting.
