Help Expose the Tuna Industry's Dirty Little Secret

    1. Petition by

      Greenpeace

Each year the canned tuna industry kills thousands of sharks, rays, turtles and seabirds. Now that's a dirty little secret. Greenpeace is launching a new campaign to get the canned tuna industry to clean up its act and end its destructive ways. To kick things off we've teamed up with Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist Mark Fiore on this video.

Help expose the the tuna industry's dirty little secret by sharing this video with everyone you know.

Canned tuna is the most commonly eaten fish in America. Unfortunately, our hunger for canned tuna, one of the last remaining wild foods, is sending many species to the brink of extinction. The tuna industry uses fish aggregation devices (FADs) along with purse seine nets, which are amongst the most environmentally destructive and wasteful forms of fishing. This type of fishing kills indiscriminately – sharks, billfish, and many other species are  scooped up then tossed away as waste. Almost a quarter of the catch is baby tuna that ends up in your can. Longlines, used to catch albacore (or “white” tuna), kill thousands and thousands of sea birds, turtles, and other animals every year. 

More selective methods of fishing already exist that would save countless marine animals and ensure fish for the future. The wastefulness of bycatch produced by the canned tuna industry begs the question: Is canned tuna really cheap? What is the true cost of tuna?

      It is very important that everyone knows the TRUTH about the ingredients in everything we eat, especially since some people may be allergic to certain ingredients of particular products.

      Why would anybody think that there will never be an end to a good catch, no matter all the destruction and the killing of oceanlife a good catch only represent? Greed and indifference are killing the innocent, while your soul is slowly drowning in an ocean of cruelty.
