About Us

What’s so special about the particular type of tuna packed into our pretty-lady cans?

It’s healthy.
Young, wild albacore swim in surface waters and are lower in mercury than their larger, deep-sea older albacore cousins. (That’s where grocery-variety tuna comes from.) Plus! Young albacore is high in selenium, which naturally mitigates the effects of mercury in the body. Isn’t that great news? It means you can slurp down a worry-free tuna melt and load up on omega-3 fatty acids.
Side note: If you’re worried about radiation, don’t be. Experts say there’s more radiation in a banana than there is in Pacific tuna!

It’s responsibly caught and handled.
We know our way around a boat! We have decades of fishing experience, so we know how to bring ‘em in and have a minimal impact on the environment. Want to geek out a little? We catch our tuna using hand-operated, low-impact, troll- and pole-caught methods. This classifies our albacore as a “Best Choice” for ocean health, according to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. In the biz we call it “hook and line, one at a time.” We wouldn’t dream of doing it any other way.

It’s loved.
We literally kiss our fish. And it’s not just for the photo op. Ask us and you’ll see: we get a little teary-eyed talking about albacores and how important they are to our families, our health, and our way of life. Every fish is harvested by us from our two family fishing vessels: the Betty Lee III and the Mistress. And we sell every last can of tuna ourselves. We’re serious about this Boat to Belly business.
Our wild, troll-caught Pacific albacore tuna is cooked once in its own natural juices. We add absolutely NO additives, broth, water, or other fillers. Ever. All cans have easy-to-open pop-top lids for less mess in the kitchen and simple, on-the-go picnicking and snacking.

Our tuna is harvested responsibly in offshore surface waters. Every fish is caught “hook and line, one at a time” for minimal impact on the planet!
Our healthy, freshly harvested young albacore tuna comes from the surface waters of the Pacific.
