Method of Capture:
Hand Line, Long Line, Hook & Line, Troll, Purse Seine
Yellowfin is fished in oceans around the globe that are regulated under many different governing bodies, so making the sustainable choice isn't without some effort. Please purchase tuna that was caught using troll, hook & line, or hand line. Tuna from the waters of the United States by longline is a better second choice. Avoid tuna caught by longline outside of US waters, and avoid purse seine captured tuna altogether.
