Most tuna found on supermarket shelves comes from unsustainable and socially irresponsible fisheries. We are working to change that. Learn more and #ChangeTuna

Raw Tuna has sickened 53 people in California. This would make me afraid to eat any form of raw fish. I love sushi.
If the fish is properly handled than it will not make you sick.
If you read the article it goes on to explain that the sickness was when people ate “spicy tuna rolls” This means that someone is disguising rotting old fish with pepper and mayonnaise intentionally hiding the inferior tuna.
A big company in California that distributes to sushi restaurants bought a cheap low quality lot of tuna and made people sick.
Bad. St Jude Tuna is frozen immediately upon capture at -30.
Joe goes on to say:
In the late 80s I delivered “fresh” albacore to a buyer in Oregon. I was an experienced ice boat fisherman I had salmon trolled, halibut fished and black cod fished in Alaska for many years. I delivered in ten days from my first catch and I was told by the buyer that my fish was so well iced I could have stayed out 3-4 more days!
Just think for a minute about a fish iced for two weeks on the boat, then put the fish into the distribution scheme, buyer to wholesaler to distributor to store to consumers refrigerator to table, how many days would this add to the age of your fish?
If you find this math disconcerting, I completely agree, fundamentally this is why St. Jude tuna is flash frozen immediately upon capture, frozen pre- rigor or as I see it frozen before the fish knows it is dead.
We naturally select for young, low mercury, fatty, sustainable tuna off of the coast of Washington State. It is wild caught for all those that might not know that. We naturally select for this special tuna because we are trolling. Most of the tuna in the grocery store is long-line caught which is not sustainable, high mercury and there is lots and lots of by-catch. We are on the Seafood Watch Card put out by Monterey Bay Aquarium as best choice for sustainability. We are MSC certified. Marine Stewardship Council. We get our special albacore canned in Bellingham WA. We have been using the same cannery for 12 years. The cans we use are BPA free. The albacore is cooked in the can in its own juices so it traps the flavor and nutrition of the omega-3 oil.
“Researchers for the first time have put a price tag on the environmental damage done by the millions of tons of plastic floating around the world’s oceans: $13 billion a year.
They added that consumers can do their part to alleviate the problem. One place to start: Avoid personal care products containing polymer microbeads.” By David Kirby
Just when we thought that being beautiful was a contribution to the common weal! We discover again that the constraints of competition in large scale manufacturing processes causes damaging and persistent environmental consequences.
… How about this guideline: “If a product is manufactured and it cannot be disposed of without impact to the environment, the resulting costs of repair to the ecology should be assessed versus the manufacturer and applied to efforts to cleanup.”
Fun article but I think the ocean is worth vastly more than 24 trillion dollars, do you think we could restore a dead ocean to a healthy sustainable state for $24,000,000,000? I actually think a better estimate of the value of our living ocean would be the cost of life as we know it, that’s a lot of trillions!
“Dolphin Safe” is too limited as a credential for choosing the “right tuna.” We want to commend consumers for their support of the Dolphin Safe program, but at St. Jude tuna we ask more – we ask consumers to vote their dollars to by catch free tuna, let’s protect flippers buddies too! Please consult the #SeafoodWatch ratings to make the right choice.
Just in time for spring – a great little tuna sandwich without the bread! Take your favorite kind of apple, rinse well, and make a series of thin slices – directly through the core. The seeds pop out and leave a beautiful star pattern.
Pack St Jude tuna salad between two slices. For our tuna salad, we mixed one can of original St Jude with about a half teaspoon of mayonnaise. Mash well.
The bread-free sandwich makes a great lunch or appetizer, especially if you slice the sandwiches into halves or quarters.
Let us know your thoughts about other alternatives to bread for your next tuna sandwich!
