Tuna

Good Earth uses a Dolphin-Safe Albacore Tuna with Negligible Amounts of Mercury

Almost all the ocean’s fish contain some degree of methyl mercury. Some fish however, can contain higher levels of this substance that can be dangerous to our health. Large, older, deep ocean tuna is one of those fish, however albacore tuna, a smaller tuna fish has trace amounts of this substance. In addition, the tuna we purchase is a younger tuna (approx. 2-5 years of age) and caught in the cold Pacific waters via “hook and line” methods. This fishing method also allows the fishermen to monitor their catch more closely. With this in mind, we offer an earth and child safe tuna sandwich as an alternative on pasta day and as a sandwich option for field trips.
