Did you know that Australians eat about 50,000 tonnes of tuna every year, making it the most-consumed seafood on the market? [1] Many of us enjoy a tuna sandwich from time to time, but it can be hard to tell the good from the bad.

That’s why we’ve ranked the big tuna brands on their commitment to sustainability and human rights in our 2017 Tuna Guide, so you know exactly what’s in your can.

Sadly, not all tuna is sourced responsibly. The global tuna industry is rife with destructive fishing methods like FADs, or ‘Fish Aggregating Devices’, that attract not just tuna, but other fish, sharks, turtles and marine life. Giant nets scoop up the lot, dumping what’s not needed back into the ocean, dead or dying.

Here’s the good news: most Australian brands have taken action in recent years to clean up their act. Thanks to empowered people like you showing that you care where your tuna comes from, major brands are taking sustainability more seriously than ever.

Of course, there is always room for improvement, and among the companies are definitely leaders and laggards. That’s why we’ve created a guide to give consumers the power to make the best choices.
