SAFCOL Responsible Fishing

Many marine species are in danger of being wiped out because many tuna brands source fish caught with ‘Fish Aggregating Devices’ (FADs) and purse-seine nets that when used together will haul up everything including turtles, baby sharks and stingrays.

In fact, a quarter of the planet’s biodiversity is in danger of extinction in the next 30 years*. So now, more than ever, it’s crucial to choose brands that are taking a positive stand for marine life.

Safcol was the first major brand available in grocery supermarkets to introduce responsible fishing into the Australian market, back in May 2011, a move that influenced change by other brands in the industry.

Safcol has made a pledge to do everything possible to protect the health of our oceans. So now you can enjoy great tasting tuna and protect fragile marine life.

Safcol Tuna is caught wither by Pole & Line one fish at a time or without the use of fish aggregating devices, FAD FREE to minimise by-catch effect on our oceans.
