If you’re still worried about canned tuna then it’s worth trying Fish4Ever. It continues to give consumers the best choice for taste, quality, ethics and sustainability.
While several supermarkets have followed the Fish4Ever lead to pledge to either only sell, or sell mostly, pole and line tuna in their own label product, the only way to be sure that the fish is of the highest quality is to use a highly ethical company. Fish4Ever (fish-4-ever.com) was named most Ethical canned tuna provider by Ethical Consumer and was rated best for sustainable canned tuna by Greenpeace (Australia).
For Fish4Ever every tuna is caught by small local boats, which in turn supports the local fishing industry. Pole and line skipjack tuna, for example, is caught
in the Azores, in the North Atlantic and packed on the island of Sao Jorge – just a short journey away.
Fishing by pole and line ensures a careful handling of the fish which are then processed and packed mostly by hand – a guarantee of sustainability and quality. Sustaining the fishing communities is ultimately also good news for the customer as well.
