Is the world running out of tuna?
No. Overall, worldwide tuna stocks are strong, especially for the main species used in canned and pouched tuna – skipjack and albacore.
Some stocks are being closely monitored and managed, however, to bring them back to their maximum sustainable yield. These include the north Atlantic albacore and the Pacific bigeye. Bluefin tuna is also being closely monitored, but it is not used in any products including canned tuna by members of the Tuna Council including Bumble Bee®, Chicken of the Sea® and StarKist®.
