More tuna secrets revealed

If you've been involved with our campaign, you may have received an email from Chicken of the Sea concerning an upcoming meeting of the International Seafood Sustainability Foundation (ISSF). We believe unbiased science is central to managing tuna fisheries. The ISSF focuses on short-term industry concerns rather than using the best available science. Find out more about our long-term global campaign to transform the tuna industry.

exposing tuna's secrets

Chicken of the Sea

Our hunger for canned tuna, one of the last remaining wild foods, is sending many species to the brink of extinction. Overfishing runs rampant in all oceans from the Pacific to the Indian Oceans, and countless animals such as sharks, turtles, rays and baby fish of many types are killed every year due to the behavior of the global tuna industry.

Canned tuna is an affordable source of protein that many families depend on. But if companies like Chicken of the Sea don't change the way they're fishing for tuna, we will lose the ocean ecosystems they depend on, and scarcity will cause the price to skyrocket.

The United States is the world's largest market for canned tuna, and we consume more than six million tons of it a year. As such, it is our responsibility to expose the behavior taking place in the shadows of the tuna industry – and Chicken of the Sea is one of the worst offenders.
