Tell the Tuna Industry to Can the Attacks

    1. Petition by

      Greenpeace

Every year, the canned tuna industry is responsible for massive amounts of ocean destruction. That’s because the methods they use to fish for tuna don’t just kill tuna. They also kill thousands upon thousands of sharks, rays, sea turtles and sea birds -- causing serious damage to the entire ocean ecosystem.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

But instead of engaging in a conversation about how they can fish more sustainably, Bumble Bee, Starkist, and Chicken of the Sea have opted to try to cover up the problem by threatening Greenpeace with legal action.

We’ve already sent them our response. Join us by sending a message to the CEO’s of Bumble Bee, Starkist, and Chicken of the Sea yourself.

      I can so easily cross tuna off on my grocery list. Grow up and own what you have done and work towards a solution.

      Just so we're clear, while it is really good to stop the killing of other incidental species, tuna is one of the most over-fished species on the planet. Ensure that you are only ever eating yellow-fin (never blue), but even better would be to try out some different fish species.

      FYI In the UK all major supermarkets sell their own tuna brands which are pole-and-line caught. The name-brand tuna companies remain behind the game.

      Loss of life for profit and then the abuse of corporate power to squelch the opposition. Very sad indeed. Maybe a tuna boycott would send them a message.

      Threatening informative organizations isn't good business.
