Wild-Caught Canned Tuna

Wild-caught canned tuna could be a healthy addition to an overall balanced diet. If you include enough fish in your diet, you don’t even need to take fish oil supplements as many people do. The healthy fats in canned tuna work wonders for your brain. Does anyone want to be in a good mood?!

How To Pick The Right Wild-Caught Canned Tuna

We like to use light dolphin safe canned tuna fish. Here are some differences to consider:

  • Light tuna contains less mercury than white and yellowfin canned tuna
  • Wild-caught tuna has more nutrients and is not fed with artificial food
  • We look for Gluten-free and Non-GMO tuna
  • My family loves dolphins. Moreover, we have read so many books about saving dolphins that my kids always look for the dolphin-safe sign on the can. Dolphin-safe means that dolphins aren’t killed while fishing for tuna.
  • We like to pick a can where the only ingredient is tuna. We like as few ingredients as possible in the products we buy. For example, we don’t like canned tuna that has added salt, added vegetable broth, added oils, and other added ingredients.
  • We prefer purchasing canned tuna from companies that try their best to preserve our ecosystem. For instance, Wild Planet claims that their tuna is “pole and line caught in the northern part of the Pacific Ocean or off coastal New Zealand, maintaining natural populations and preserving the ecosystem”. When fishermen use nets, dolphins are caught in those nets and die.

We looked through many canned tuna companies, and this is one of our favorite.

  1. I’ve used the Swing-A-Way jar opener for years without any problems. I always run hot water over the lid first. This helps with the opening and also washes out any dirt or debris sitting around the edge of the lid, which would be sucked in when the vacuum is broken. It’s slim and fits easily into the overflowing kitchen gadget draw.
