Fiji’s first sustainable tuna gets into EU

Starting June, the first sustainable labeled tuna from Fiji – the Albacore tuna range – will be available on the European market. The tuna range has been accredited since December 2012 with the MSC certification - which gives retailers the certainty of the fishery’s sustainability credentials. The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) is the world's leading certification and ecolabelling program for sustainable seafood.
The Fiji albacore tuna longline fishery operates in the South Pacific Ocean in Fiji’s economic exclusion zone. For three years, members of the Fiji Tuna Boat Owners Association worked to meet the MSC standard for sustainable fisheries. Among other, the Fiji Albacore Tuna longline fishery has reduced its environmental impact and generated employment for the people of Fiji, the Association explained.
The tuna will be available both frozen and fresh.
