Monterey Bay Aquarium Seawatch continues to monitor the seas and stores for sustainable fishing practices, reports Dave Nordstrand for TheCalifornian.com. And tuna is the second most popular seafood item in the US just behind shrimp, reports the aquarium.
Nordstrand shares a Seawatch tip for buying sustainable tuna. To eliminate wasteful bycatch of other species like dolphin or turtles, look for two words on the label of the tuna can:
“Troll caught.” And all albacore tuna landed onboard the FV St. Jude is troll-caught.
