Tuna

{alt_text}

Succulent Tuna – a firm favourite.

Tuna are pretty easy to find in the big blue ocean, one of the regulars if you will.

The boats and expert crews we work with cruise around Ghana and in the Indian Ocean, all the while looking out for shoals of our fishy friends. The most common type of tuna caught around the world is called Skipjack. They can weigh anything between 3-6kgs and like to feed on smaller marine animals like crustaceans, molluscs and other difficult-to-spell sea creatures.

At John West we’re committed to sourcing tuna caught using only the most responsible and efficient fishing methods. That’s why we work so closely with industry bodies. Together we are working towards ensuring the sustainability of all the sea food we use in our products and we’re proud to be playing our part in it.

Once the fish is caught, they are immediately frozen and stored on board to preserve their freshness. Then, when back at port, they’re landed and transferred for sorting (sizes and species). And, shortly after that, they’re processed, packed and prepared for distribution.

In fact, the hardest part of the whole boat-to-plate process is deciding which of our delicious seafood & tuna recipes you’re going to choose. They don’t say tuna is the most versatile fish for no reason now do they?
