I found my Tuna, O Fortuna!
Out of all the tuna species, Albacore is the most abundant, and even they are on the WWF near threatened list. However other species such as Yellowfin and Bluefin tuna are even worse off with Bluefin being put on the endangered status list by WWF. Skipjack however is listed as “Least Concern” by WWF. Now if one must eat tuna, we as consumers can make some smart choices. Here is the 2013 Canned Tuna Sustainability Ranking from Greenpeace. On top is the Raincoast Traading and coming in second place is Wild Planet Foods Inc. If I had a choice I would get Wild Planet Food Inc’s Skipjack (light tuna), and listen to Carmina Burana O’Fortuna while I eat my tuna sandwich… because it is tasty and depressing at the same time
