Kiwis are eating threatened Pacific tuna without knowing it. We must stop contributing to tuna overfishing along with the indiscriminate fishing methods that also kill sharks, turtles and baby tuna. We can contribute to a healthy Pacific tuna fishery by;
- Our canned tuna brands sourcing only sustainably caught tuna.
- The New Zealand Government standing with our Pacific neighbours to ban the most destructive fishing methods, end overfishing and create marine reserves.
- New Zealand’s tuna fishing companies switching to more sustainable methods.
If we ensure these things happen we will be able to preserve tuna stocks and ensure we have tuna on our shelves, and in our Pacific Ocean, for the long-term.
