Tuna for Tomorrow is a campaign to combat misinformation about sustainable stocks of tuna fished by the America’s leading canned tuna brands. Radical environmental activists have for years distorted the true status of tuna stocks worldwide claiming overfishing of species that are not overfished in order to further their own goals.
Skipjack is the species usually sold as “chunk light” tuna and albacore tuna is sold as “solid white.” According to a consensus of scientists, stocks of skipjack and albacore are plentiful and being fished sustainably to ensure that future generations of families enjoy canned tuna too.
Unfortunately, despite all the scientifically driven data to the contrary, radical activists, like Greenpeace, are campaigning to save tuna that don’t need saving. Apparently motivated by their own budgeted obligations — which include a $32 million yacht and operating expenses running nearly $700,000 per day — we believe that Greenpeace has fabricated a crisis for fundraising purposes.
Tuna for Tomorrow is sponsored by the National Fisheries Institute. NFI is a non-profit organization dedicated to education about seafood safety, sustainability and nutrition. For more information about NFI, please visit our website at aboutseafood.com.
