American Tuna, Inc.
American Tuna was formed by Six American Pole & Line fishing families in San Diego California in 2005. The Mission of American Tuna is to provide a high quality sustainable canned albacore tuna customers can buy directly from the source. Using a traditional harvest and packing method, they offer the highest quality, all-natural, tuna pack on the market. American Tuna started in just two Whole Foods Markets in our hometown of San Diego and have expanded in to every Whole Foods location Nationwide as well as many other organic markets, restaurants, deli’s, and catering companies. Their products are hand filleted & hand packed Premium Albacore Loins. The Tuna steaks are packed in the can by hand raw, sealed, and pressure-cooked, packing itself in fish oil. No added oil, water, soy, other fish, just premium albacore in its own natural fish oil. The packing method gives the customer approximately 7,800mg’s of Omega 3 per 6oz serving naturally, by not baking the product prior to canning, the Omega 3 retention is 100%, No Draining! The Fish Oil in the Can should be included with the Albacore while breaking up the Steak.
The North and South Pacific albacore fishery is conducted by small, family-owned fishing boats that are based out of San Diego, Calif. In September 2007, this fishery was the first tuna fishery to be awarded the MSC eco-label for sustainable fishing. A highly migratory species, albacore are fished throughout large areas of the Pacific Ocean. The fish are caught using pole and troll fishing techniques and the fishermen pride themselves on the care they take to protect the marine environment.
