American Tuna was formed by six American Pole & Line fishing families in San Diego, California in 2005. The Mission of American Tuna is to provide a high quality sustainable canned albacore tuna customers can buy directly from the source. Using a traditional harvest and packing method, we offer the highest quality, all-natural, tuna pack on the market. American Tuna started in just two Whole Foods Markets in our hometown of San Diego and have expanded in to every Whole Foods location Nationwide as well as many other organic markets, restaurants, deli’s, and catering companies. Our products are hand filleted & hand packed Premium Albacore Loins. The Tuna steaks are packed in the can by hand raw, sealed, and pressure-cooked, packing itself in fish oil. No added oil, water, soy, other fish, just premium albacore in its own natural fish oil.
The packing method gives the customer approximately 7,800mg’s of Omega 3 per 6oz serving naturally, by not baking the product prior to canning, the Omega 3 retention is 100%, No Draining! The Fish Oil in the Can should be included with the Albacore while breaking up the Steak. At American Tuna we have 100% Traceability for every single albacore harvested, meaning we can trace our final canned and labeled product back to the vessel that caught it! American Tuna is caught using the MSC Certified Sustainable Pole & Line Harvest Method in the U.S. Pacific Northwest. Packed by Hand in Oregon, our cans are BPA Free, and manufactured in America. Pole & Line caught Albacore Tuna are on average 12 – 20lbs, making them Naturally Low in Mercury, we test yearly for Mercury concentrations with Columbia food labs. American Tuna is ranked as the “Best Specialty Tuna” by Bon Appétit and has been featured as “Tuna you can Trust” by Martha Stewart Living.
