Pole-and-line!

Fish Tales ensures that their tuna products are 100% pole-and-line caught. This is because gear matters and pole-and-line caught fish means reducing bycatch, overfishing, and plastic pollution.

North Atlantic pole-and-line and troll albacore tuna

Atlantic Ocean
This fishery was established by the Spanish and French in the Bay of Biscay at the end of WWII. The original fishery operates in the summer months as this suits the migration patterns of the albacore tuna in the Atlantic. In 1970, the fishery expanded to operate off Morocco to cover the autumn months when the albacore tuna seek warmer waters.

Pole-and-line

This fishing method provides the most selective targeting of tuna possible, with minimal bycatch of non-target fish and marine wildlife like dolphins, turtles and sharks. Pole-and-line fishing targets schools of tuna near the ocean surface, and therefore only needs to use short lengths of line on each pole, typically  5-10m.
