It's great to see so many people have already taken the pledge, at the same time, it's sad to see how many of them did so because they feel sorry for/love dolphins (from what was said on comments), so it's ok to kill tuna since they're not as 'beautiful' or 'magical' as dolphins? Sad.
Most of us DO think it's wrong to kill Tuna for other reasons on so many levels, including their beauty...and I agree that it is sad if people think the way you describe
I personally love all wildlife and the beauties they bring to this Earth and find it wrong to exploit them in any way.
we need to eat fish ,sealife fact x
I understand your point completely. I cant say I am vegetarian b/c I do eat chicken from time to time. But just 2 days ago I went to a market, right next to jt was a Fresh Fish store. (I never go in). But that day, something pulled me to go there. ....they had crabs in a box, "alive". It was heart breaking to see them out of their comfort dying SLOWLY! .....it made me sk sad, and alone. Wish more people will feel Oneness with all of the Universe. -Love, Light, &Smiles-Fabi-
Debbie Daniel No...as repulsive as his comment is, I wouldn't say that. He is just saying what everyone believes; Many people think that we need to eat seafood to stay healthy. In fact, I bet if we did a random survey 90% would say so. But the truth is, we don't need fish to survive. There are alternate sources of protein and Omega-3. Soy contains much protein and walnuts contain Omega-3.
And even IF we needed to eat fish, we shouldn't need to take obsessively large quantities out of the...
And even IF we needed to eat fish, we shouldn't need to take obsessively large quantities out of the ocean. It is depleting the ocean and causing the deaths of many innocent animals including dolphins, sharks, turtles, and fish. Many of the fish taken away from the sea don't even get eaten. How much more unconscientious and wasteful can humans be? All we care about is ourselves. All we care about is our own egocentric feelings. If killing the whole world is justifiable just because the majority agrees with it, then the world is doomed. People, please wake up. I don't want life to extinguished on this planet permanently because of our ignorance.

David Patrick McCluskey - NO HUMAN NEEDS TO EAT FISH.
Fabiola Salazar I agree with the ONEness of the Universe; and I won't eat crabs etc. since they are tied up for too long--if you get a crab, eat it quick!! Horrid way to die for any creature; then some boiled alive.....yuck.
Dolphins have many, many times gone WAY out of their way to save a human life, as in many cases of surfers being stalked by sharks-these dolphins, for whatever reason, will place themselves between a human and a shark to save a human life. Like it or not, they are linked in to us as few other species. Do we want to thank them back? We should be making contact with them and loving them.
I have not purchased or eaten "tuna" in the past 5 years mainly due to this issue.
Aldo Bertagna ofcourse it is it has to b an existance of our world day n age has been since the beggining aslong as done the rite way there are more than enogh and i love fish yum yum ....
DEBBIE, I believe every thing you just said. let's see if this MAN(DAVID PATRICK McCLUSKEY) WILL really watch all that Movie. I bet my bottom Dollar he will Chicken out. what do you think?
Nope, sorry. Fishing is not sustainable with a world population of 6-7 billion and common use of destructive fishing techniques. Also, the topic of pollution is now critical. Interesting comment (forgot the speaker): "Tuna is how rich people poison themselves." The top predator fish, such as tuna, accumulate mercury and other heavy metals that we're dumping into the oceans. Read up, David!
i seen those videos debbie and they r horrifying,what is wrong with these heartless people, i use to love trout i caught in upper michigans clear lakes n rivers, since i moved to california i stopped eating fish it just doesn't taste right here, and i don't eat beef anymore or pork, i'm not a vegan, but my diet has definetly changed for the better^>^
you like fish so much yum yum go bite your self !! You have no idea of what your talking about
I won't mention just read they will get it maybe.
REALLY SUSHI Is bad enough, Do you want to eat Dolphins?
HERE WE THOUGHT "CHARLIE" Was A TUNA! HE IS A LIAR & DOLPHIN - KILLER!! I LOVED FLIPPER!!!
In this world everything is about greed and money.If every individual, corparate businesses, organisations, politicians our youth, mentors, Politisians, Our goverments that must take reponsible action to eleminate those practises , punishes these individuals cartals, make aware of commercial netting practises, endagering our tuna populations.This is not just words but positive input and results to safe our world.
The greed is killing the oceans!!!!
I would imagine that the South African companies producing tins of Tuna do not adhere to sustainable fishing either.
I agree with you and I think every company who does this needs to be put out of business and I don't care what country they are from. I am boycotting Japan having the Olympics because they slaughter dolphins every year. They herd them, drag them onto the beach and stab them. Every country, company and person should be held accountable for what they do.
Soon enough the tuna is exterminated to...
You are as most of the times right Krille and you are a better fishe than me. We could write to the Japaneese fishingindustri because they are fishing so hard. There are other countries too. So what do you say. Its just a suggestion...
Better to sink their fishingfactorys i think my friend...Greenpeace are doing it good, but they cant be everyway at all time im afraid...
I thought that but you know me i can be a velpotta even if it is better of now. The situation in the Baltic sea i slowly getting better, but the poison is still there. The fish aswell as Tång can change that. Herring and Salmon is really recovering. I cought some, but i put them back. Torsk and Strömming is better too!
Krister Rehn Yes we can focus at the Fishinfactorys and send them an letter if you like!!!
I always make sure I buy dolphin-safe tuna. I guess I will not be buying tuna at all anymore.
Monsanto is spraying everywhere in the world, saw it on U-Tube today and now I can't find it. Water too! And take ONE guess who's behind this????
Same thing Kenny, the feds pull ALL the strings!!!!
Hope this petition has some effect.
I have a few companies i dont buy their products too...Sanitarium and Nestlé.
Glad to hear that people are boycotting products. I know about Nestle, but not about Sanitarium. What are they up to?
I dont give money to any "alternative" church companies.
I or my children do not eat any type of Tuna for the fact that I have been protesting the issues of Dolphins being caught up in Tuna nets and being chopped up and mixed in with tuna.I have not bought or eaten tuna in over 20 yrs. Dolphins are beautiful and angelic creatures and we all need to do our part to save them.
Dolphins are not chopped and mixed with tuna. Caught and killed and chucked overboard maybe.
You should really do your research before leaving a false comment like that .
i ALSO HAVE NOT EATEN TUNA IN OVER 25 plus YEARS
meat-in-a-can was a always a little 'fishy' to me...pardon the pun...but even as a child, it didn't seem right...why not just eat some Spam, while you're at it? (And this was BEFORE the dolphin-crisis/aweness)...just didn't SEEM RIGHT, I tell ya.
fish or sealife is beatiful food but in a can no way ....
You may like to eat it, but do you consider the methods used to indulge your tastes?
Tana I agree with you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
