Wild Planet believes that conservation of wild habitat and harvest of wild seafood can successfully coexist. As the company name suggests, they strive to offer a product line consisting only of the most eco-preferable, wild seafood on the planet.
What Makes Wild Planet Different?
Their fish are caught one-by-one using hand lines and “pole and troll” methods. By using these two methods they insures that, unlike the conventional fishing methods many companies use, other species of marine life such as dolphins and turtles aren’t harmed in the process.
Wild Planet workers take delivery of the fish right off the boats, and many of the boat owners are even shareholders in the company. This gives Wild Planet the advantage of being one of the very few packaged seafood companies that oversees selecting only the highest quality fish from the catch, directing quality control in the packing of the product and offering the product to our customers.
Even though the actual packaging of the fish is done in Vietnam, their goal is to make US-sourced sustainable seafood choices mainstream and thus be able to have a greater impact on fishery harvest practices for the long-term good of ocean conservation.
The troll-caught albacore from the North Pacific fishery are lower in mercury because these migratory fish are smaller (about 9 to 25 pounds) and younger (three to five years old) than the long-line caught older fish that reach up to 70 pounds after ten to fifteen years of growth. Naturally, the longer a fish lives and feeds, the more it bio-accumulates mercury.
- Wild Planet uses the highest quality raw materials
- Our tuna is undiluted by additives or water
- Our tuna is hand-cut and packed to provide a whole tuna steak in every can.
- You are getting 100% pure albacore tuna and sea salt in its own natural juices
The tuna is amazing! You get big chucks and the flavor is unlike any other tuna you have ever tried. Addie opened her sandwich and ate all the tuna off the bread and then asked for more because, “I can’t eat an empty sandwich, Mama.” It was quite cute!
