American Tuna Inc was formed by six pole and line fishing families in San Diego, California in 2004. Our mission is for every US consumer to have access to sustainable seafood products they can trust.
We launched our founding brand, American Tuna, to support and market albacore tuna from the US pole & line and troll fishing community. The American Tuna brand is packed by hand at artisanal canneries in the US. This was the first MSC certified sustainable canned tuna sold in the USA and remains one of the most highly ranked canned tuna products.
We only source tuna caught using one-by-one methods – the most environmental and socially responsible way to catch tuna. We’re proud of our sourcing standards and our supply chains, and ensure that all our products can be traced back to their source.
Supporting American Tuna is supporting the preservation of artisanal fishermen, craft canneries and coastal communities who helped pioneer the West Coast albacore fishery.
Why Good Eggs loves American Tuna
Canned tuna fish is a staple in most kitchen pantries, but it's hard to find one that's sourced and packed sustainably. Fear not—we've cracked the nut! A tuna that's MSC Certified, pole & line-caught, hand filleted and hand packed in BPA-free packaging, AND it taste delicious??
