American Tuna

American Tuna MSC-certified Premium Canned Albacore Tuna

American Tuna was formed by six American Pole & Line fishing families in San Diego, California in 2005. The Mission of American Tuna is to provide a high quality sustainable canned albacore tuna customers can buy directly from the source. American Tuna is hand filleted and hand packed premium albacore loins. The tuna steaks are packed in the can by hand raw, sealed, and pressure-cooked, packing itself in fish oil. No added oil, water, soy, other fish – just premium albacore in its own natural fish oil.

American Tuna purchases & processes only MSC certified sustainable pole & line albacore from the American Albacore Fishing Association (AAFA). AAFA is comprised of 100% U.S certified pole & line vessels. These fishermen and AAFA have strict quality standards and protocols resulting in the highest quality whole round albacore in the world. Traceability back to Harvest Vessel is audited yearly, enabling any customer to view the vessel and fisherman who harvested the albacore purchased.


AAFA was the first tuna fishery in the world to obtain the MSC certification (marine stewardship council, for sustainability in September of 2007. American Tuna was the first MSC-labeled canned tuna in the U.S. and has been recognized on multiple media platforms as the most trustworthy canned tuna available, anywhere.

American Tuna utilizes 100% of the Albacore Tuna we process. We hand filleted the premium cuts off the albacore for canning and currently the remainder of the whole round is utilized for bait for both the crab and eel fisherman.

American Tuna has been ranked as the “Best Specialty Tuna” by Bon Appétit.
