Tuna

As one of the few kinds in the ocean, the tuna is a warm-blooded fish. Making it comfortable in both warm tropic and ice-cold water, and also explains why it doesn’t just swim around the equator but also around countries like Iceland. What makes tuna different from most fish is the color of the fish meat. It’s not white but more pink-ish, and contains loads of omega 3 fatty acids. Great for the heart and blood vessels!

Our tuna fisheries

If it were up to us, all tuna was caught with a fishing rod. That’s why we only work with fisheries that use this sustainable and traditional method of fishing. One by one, fish by fish. Sea Tales only works with MSC-certified fisheries in Hondarribia and Maandhoo. Next to that, we work hard to get the skipjack tuna fishery the Bitung, Indonesia, MSC-certified. You can read more about this project on our foundation page.
