Yellowfin Tuna

  • From:
    Western Central Pacific
    Method:
    Wild: handline

Yellowfin tuna caught in the Western Central Pacific Ocean with handlines is a “Best Choice” because the populations are healthy and bycatch of other species is low. Yellowfin tuna caught in the Western Central Pacific Ocean with trolls or poles-and-lines is of “Some Concerns” because these fisheries also target bigeye tuna and it’s being overfished.
