What’s in your can of tuna?

For World Oceans Day we’re shining a light on tuna to ensure they’ll be with us for generations to come. Sign the Seafood Pledge.

Many of us grew up eating tuna sandwiches and canned tuna is still one of the most widely sold seafood products in Canada. All of this eating contributes to a huge demand on a finite resource. It comes to us from around the globe and may contain high levels of mercury, cause excessive by-catch of other species, or be teetering on the brink of extinction. In Canada, scientists found a 69 per cent decline in the population of Atlantic bluefin tuna, qualifying it as an endangered species.

Did you know, it may not even be tuna you`re eating? Studies show that much of what is called tuna is another species.
