At A Glance

Caught one-by-one by hook and line Albacore tuna

The albacore tuna, Thunnus alalunga, used in our private label tuna is sourced from fishermen in the USA (pole-and-line or troll caught) or New Zealand (troll caught) who use one pole, line and hook to catch one fish at a time – something that requires great strength and dexterity by the fisher. Pole-and-line and troll fisheries are two of the most selective ways to catch tuna, significantly reducing bycatch and harm to other marine life. These fisheries are also socially responsible as they help ensure the economic viability and resilience of local coastal communities.

Serving suggested
  • Use it to make appetizers or snacks with bread or crackers. 
  • Use it in salads or straight out of the glass jar. 
Our difference

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.
