Our Wild, Troll Caught Tuna adheres to the highest standards of Quality and Sustainability Possible.
It is very important to use care in selecting your canned Tuna : most of the big brands in the supermarket (Bumble Bee, StarKist, etc. ) sell Albacore sourced from South Pacific fisheries which have management issues(see the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Fish Watch Video above). Instead, we recommend (and so does the Monterey Bay Aquarium) that you use tuna caught along the U.S. coast, like Sportsman’s Cannery Wild Albacore Tuna. It is troll caught in the Pacific Northwest and the best canned tuna you will ever eat: it’s so incredibly tasty. It also isn’t packed in oil or water, just tuna cooked in its own juices.
Our tuna is troll caught off the Oregon Coast by fishing vessels based in Winchester Bay and other local ports using sustainable, dolphin safe methods. Besides being an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, troll caught albacore tuna tend to be younger, smaller fish and have tested lower in mercury levels than tuna harvested by other methods.
