There are several reasons Trader Joe's Wild Skipjack Tuna is an exciting addition to our grocery line up... First, this Wild Skipjack is sustainably caught in Thailand, without the use of FADs (Fish Aggregating Devices). This approach aids in reducing by-catch.
Second, as far as we can tell, this is the only Tuna on the market for which each fish is tested individually for mercury. Only those fish registering 0.15 parts per million of mercury or less are used. (Incidentally, this is approximatelyten times stricterthan the FDA mercury action limit.)
Third, our Skipjack is hand-cut and hand-packed raw in the pouch, then slow-cooked (inside the pouch), sealing in nutrients and flavor. (Most canned tuna is cooked twice.) So grab your favorite sandwich bread, crackers, veggies, or even just a fork, and dig in!
