View the Greenpeace canned tuna ranking website to find out which canned tuna you should buy. You can find a great variety of sustainable canned tuna in most supermarkets in Australia thanks to the Greenpeace campaign to get Australia’s biggest supplier, John West, to change to 100% FAD (fish aggregating [or aggregation] device) free and pole and line tuna. The interactive website will enable you to view information about a variety of brands of tuna.
Tips to make sure you purchase sustainable canned tuna varieties include:
- looking for the 'pole and line' canned tuna products
- not buying yellowfin tuna—focus your choices on skipjack or albacore.
- ensuring the tuna you buy clearly has the species name, where it was caught, with the fishing method used written clearly on the label.
