First World Tuna Day raises awareness on sustainability, purity challenges

Today, the world recognizes one of its most important food sources, tuna, on the first World Tuna Day. It was voted into existence by the United Nations in December 2016 to raise awareness of tuna’s “critical role” in the food security of many countries and the urgent need to protect tuna from non-sustainable fishing practices and pollution. Safe Catch strongly supports World Tuna Day with sustainable fishing practices and a mission to protect purity in our oceans.

Safe Catch is Ocean Wise Approved and a proud partner of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program. Safe Catch is the only brand that tests every single fish for mercury. Consumers can change our world with their choices. Choosing a can or pouch of healthier Safe Catch tuna is a choice for health, sustainability and ocean purity.

“Sustainable fishing is critical and Safe Catch is calling on the seafood industry to fish sustainably and protect the purity of the tank (ocean) as well. Nearly one of out three fish tested do not pass our strict purity standards largely due to man-made pollution. The way to get the industry to change is to show them consumers care about purity and sustainability,” said Co-founder, Sean Wittenberg.

For sustainability, make sure the canned or fresh tuna you eat has been caught with Pole & Line or FAD free methods. These methods minimize bycatch. For purity, buy Safe Catch – the only brand to test every fish for mercury – and show big industry that purity matters to you.
