Tuna is the third most popular seafood in America, right behind shrimp and salmon. And most of that tuna is bought in the canned variety. When shopping for canned tuna, look for brands that use “pole caught” or “troll caught,” which are methods that do not use nets and do not have bycatch like sea turtles, sharks and even seabirds. The nonprofit Monterey Bay Aquarium also has a “Seafood Watch” approved marker used by brands that follow its recommendations for fishing. Just look for the mark to find sustainable tuna when you shop.
