As a pescatarian environmental scientist, I am always trying to find ways to add protein that is sustainably sourced to my meals, and luckily there are ways to approach canned tuna in a sustainable way!
The most sustainable way to eat canned tuna is by making sure it is skipjack or yellowfin tuna. Most tuna labeled as “light” is skipjack or yellowfin, as opposed to “white” tuna which is usually albacore. Opt for “light” to reduce your environmental impact.
From nachos to pasta salad, there are so many fun ways to enjoy tuna! Find all our favorite tuna recipes here.
