Sea Tales is more than just a brand. We are widely available in the USA. They are truly passionate about the tuna they eat and the community it comes from. This can of Albacore tuna (Thunnuns alalunga) is a must-have in the pantry. It tastes great and is so versatile. Sea Tales suggests that tuna preserved in water, like this can, is best used in cold dishes like a tasty tuna crunch wrap. Check out the Sea Tales website for more inspiration. 

Sea Tales work with local fishing companies who live and fish in true harmony with nature. They only fish using pole-and-line, and their Foundation directly gives back to the communities that they supply from. This tuna is guaranteed to make you smile.

At A Glance


Sea Tales ensures that all their tuna products are 100% pole-and-line caught. Because gear matters and pole-and-line caught fish means reducing bycatch, overfishing and plastic pollution. On top of that, this tuna fishery in Indonesia is Fair Trade certified. That guarantees that both the fishermen and factory workers are treated with respect, and have safe and fair working conditions

Giving back Sea Tales Foundation

By purchasing this product, you help giving back to the coastal communities that supply your fish.

They want to ensure that the oceans remain a healthy source of food and income for all the people who depend on fishing as their livelihood: the fishers, the fishing communities, and their families. The Sea Tales Foundation is committed to keeping oceans healthy worldwide.

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.

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.
