My Thoughts

My children love to eat Tuna, but the way they are caught has always has always been a concern to me. With Wild Planet, we can get the great taste we love without a guilty conscience, because Wild Planet uses sustainable methods to catch their fish.

We received an assortment of products to try. I'm not a real big fish eater in general, but I do enjoy canned tuna and I made sandwiches for  my kids. It was rich, meaty and so very fresh. It even smelled amazing. The salmon I passed on to my mom, and she was just as impressed.  Both cans are easy to open and inside there were big hunks of fresh meat.  While no one I know eats sardines or anchovies, I have no doubt that these would be just as good.

The Wild Planet fish we tried was definitely superior to  other store brands, but it's their pledge to the earth that really caught my attention. I live by the ocean and the marine life is important to me. I hate to think of the beautiful creatives of the sea suffering needlessly. Wild Planet delivers the best fish to our table, without doing harm in the process.
