Tuna is one of the world’s most popular seafoods and one of the most economically valuable. In some countries tuna is the main source of protein. Many livelihoods, particularly in island nations, depend on tuna fishing.

The MSC is committed to combatting overfishing and building the market for sustainable tuna.  In recognition of World Tuna Day, we want to celebrate tuna, the fish that feeds the world.
