A Healthier and Better Tasting Tuna
Safe Catch makes its tuna differently than conventional tuna which precooks fish on racks (many Omega 3s drain away), machine packs, rehydrates with chemicals and fillers and cooks it again in the can. At Safe Catch, we hand-cut sushi grade solid tuna steaks and slow cook each one to perfection. All of the nutrients and flavor are sealed in for a fresh, clean taste. Safe Catch does not use any additives or fillers and is non GMO verified. Just 100% pure tuna.
Sustainably Wild Caught
We only source sustainably caught Pole and Line and FAD Free tuna in our partnership with the Monterey Bay Seafood Watch program.
Our mission is to protect you and our oceans. We are in a fight against pollutants in our food and oceans and we believe the consumer is the answer. You vote every day with your wallet and your support of mission driven brands has a real impact. We are dedicated to sustainability and we work on and support initiatives to protect the purity of our oceans.
About the Founders
As childhood friends growing up next door to each other, we never thought we would be working together and fighting for purity in our seafood and oceans. It all began when Sean’s mom read an article about mercury variance in tuna and said, “Moms shouldn’t have to worry about giving tuna sandwiches to their kids. Sean, why don’t you solve this?”
After some research, we learned that two identical tuna, same species, size and school could vary in mercury levels by over 10 times. The only way to know the mercury level was to test every fish.
Existing technology cost $100 per mercury test which would make a can of tuna cost about 50 bucks. So, we formed a team of talented software and hardware engineers and invented a new technology to rapidly test every fish for purity.
We went to major seafood brands and offered to test for them but they all declined. One executive told us that consumers wouldn’t understand or care about better purity. So, we did what any entrepreneur with zero experience in food would do. We started a new brand of tuna and named it Safe Catch.
We knew how to identify amazing tuna but we didn’t how to make amazing tuna. We were surprised to learn that conventional tuna is precooked, rehydrated with fillers, machined processed and recooked and as result of so much processing it loses many vital Omega 3 oils, flavor and texture.
So, we searched for a better way to make and cook tuna. We found and adapted an old artisan method. At Safe Catch, we hand cut and hand pack each wild tuna steak into a BPA free lined can with no additives or fillers. Then, we slow cook it just once. It took us 75 different variations to get our formula perfect.
We’re so happy with the purity, quality, and taste. All of the vital Omega 3 oils and flavor are retained in Safe Catch tuna and there is no draining after opening. Open the can into a bowl, chop up the steak with a fork and let it reabsorb its natural oils. It’s moist and delicious pure wild tuna as nature intended.
We hope you love it!
