I usually buy my Tuna at Trader Joe's, but sometimes pick up one of these brands if I'm at a regular grocery store. Ought to have done some research. I do believe Greenpeace and I am SO SICK of companies lying to consumers!
Colleen, I saw something on blue fin fish in the Pacific having high amounts of radiation from the nuclear power plants effected by the sunami in Japan. Hope you will cross blue fin tuna off your list, for now.
Also, Please, Please, Please don't buy Canadian seafood..fresh or otherwise. Why you ask? Canada's biggest industry is fishing. However, they still SLAUGHTER thousands of baby harp seals each year for their fur industry. Totally barbaric and sickening! We can STOP the fur trade by hitting them where their biggest wealth comes from...fishing!
What? They still slaughter baby harp seals? I thought that stopped a few years ago - I must have been mistaken. Oh, I'm so sorry to hear that's still going on. Who in the world uses harp seal fur - which country do they export it to? Sorry, I guess I'm ignorant.
I am Canadian, and am sickened that the seal hunts continue......I wonder, too......where is the market for their pelts??????
I won't be purchasing anymore tuna I never knew about this thank you I absolutely love dolphins.
If you read the label, you can get tuna labeled, dolphin safe.
but does that mean its dolphin safe?
They can't label it as dolphin safe if it's not according to FDA regulations.
As usual, laws are passed and ignored. Funding for oversight is non existent. Signing a petition may seem weak but a boycott sends the message loud and clear!
I've been boycotting all fish for this very reason, and mercury, other awful toxins, we ingest. Sea life is such a delicate ecosystem, and we have totally screwed it up. :( I'm thinking about going totally veg, but I do like some good local bacon or chicken every once in a while. Maybe I'm just so tired of humans and the crap we do. :(
I have to agree.....and say that the horrors of meat farming is an even greater concern to me than the fishing issues. Not to disregard it.....I am here, signing......but what cattle, dairy cows, pigs and chickens suffer through is most inhumane. Sickening.
I absolutely agree that thee only way to get their attention is to boycott the products.......it hits them in their big fat checkbooks , when they start losing money perhaps then they will pay attention to the safety of the other wildlife in the oceans.
I don't eat Tuna but my husband does which won't happen again until this stops! I'm so angry that this is still happening to our beautiful creatures :(
Of course I know this Derek, I was talking about the dolphins, whales and porpoises being maimed and killed!!!! ex
oh I know Derek, it makes me sick! I can't watch that program without being in tears :(
NO MORE KILLING OF GOD's GRACEFULL CREATURES PLEASE! STOP!
To each his own but I WILL NOT!!
I will not eat the Fish!!!!
I shop in sainsburys, ALL of their tuna is caught by rod and line, maybe they should leave the fish alone for a few years as stocks are massively depleted worldwide, maybe there should be a huge famine in an overpopulated part of the world, Nature taking revenge, us humans are a blight on this planet, as a species we are parasites, veganism isn't the answer either!
I've said for years the human race needs to be wiped out and start again!!
Thanks, Davide Amadori !
I am on my way to become a Vegan anyway and do not eat any food in cans or any processed foods - fruit and veggies, nuts.... How can a human be kind to his children and then go out and kill another living thing?
I sometimes wonder also how humans can be so void of the feelings of other life be it animals or critters of any size.....how can a human not care that they are infilicting pain and suffering to another living creature??
No more tuna
Yes I most definitely will boycott these products and companies. What would be very fitting is to post the companies who's practices are safe for other of God's Creatures. I will do some research and find these particular-Stand Alone Safe companies.
