At A Glance

Migros x WWF

Migros has committed to only sell fish and seafood that either conforms to a sustainable label or which has been categorised as "recommended" or "acceptable" by WWF by the end of 2020.

In 2014, it became the first Swiss retailer to only sell fish that has been categorised as recommended or acceptable by WWF at its fresh fish counters. By the end of 2014, 97% of the overall range originates from sustainable sources.

No Nets!

This product was caught using hooks and lines. Using nets is not welcome here! Nets are an unsustainable gear type. These mass synthetic materials are a vast cause of both bycatch of other species and over fishing. Moreover, if lost or discarded, these nets continue to plague the ocean as 'ghost gear' - bringing pollution and the threat of entanglement to our oceans.

Inspiration?

These fillets are versatile and ready to eat. If you want to spruce them up, then lightly fry and use as the main show on your stir-fry.

Maldives pole-and-line skipjack tuna

Indian Ocean
The Maldives pole-and-line skipjack fishery has been operating for centuries and has been the lifeline of the Maldivian economy since before the boom of the tourism industry in the mid 1970s. The fishery not only provides a large proportion of the country’s income from the tuna trade and export, but also provides one of the only sources of protein for the Maldivian population, also contributing to a stable livelihood. The Maldivian pole-and-line fishery is located in the Arabian Sea within the Indian Ocean.

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.

Skipjack Tuna

Skipjack are generally smaller in size compared to other tuna species and also have shorter lifecycles, meaning they can start reproducing very early, after only one year. This has benefits for sustainability, and makes it one of the most abundant tuna species.
