This year at Expo West 2016 I had the pleasure of meeting the crew behind an awesome brand, SafeCatch. I’m big into seafood, but especially seafood that’s done right. I’m talking tuna in this case – canned tuna. Yeah, that’s right – canned tuna can be amazing if you try SafeCatch. Have you ever thought (dreamed, hoped) that tuna could be tastier and healthier for you? Well you don’t have to put up with boring tuna any longer. Ever since I tried SafeCatch I have been hooked (ah hem, pardon the pun).
About SafeCatch and Why They Rock
You might have read an older post of mine where I talk about SafeCatch, but if not, here’s the lowdown again: SafeCatch has a pretty meticulous protocol for testing every single fish for high levels of mercury. They have the strictest mercury limits of any brand and their product Safe Catch Elite is the only tuna brand that passes Consumer Reports “Low Mercury” criteria for pregnant women and kids.

Safe Catch also tastes exceptional. If you weren’t aware, most canned tuna companies pre-cook their tuna and use additives and fillers to put flavor back into the fish. These brands will put the tuna on racks which drains out over 80% of the natural omega-3s and added benefits. In order to really appreciate Safe Catch, you would need to try it yourself. When I had a taste test I thought it was like having freshly caught tuna, grilled and served to me. Safe Catch doesn’t remove the delicious juices from the fish, so you get the full flavor of the fish and a nice dose of Omega 3s with every bite. The way they do it is by using a unique cooking process called ‘Raw Packing’ where they take hand cut tuna steaks and pack them in the can, and cook in the can to retain 100% of the Omega-3s, natural vitamins and minerals. They also don’t add any broth, oil, or water to their tuna. Safe Catch tuna is just cooked in its natural fish oils for a very fresh flavor!
Bryan, CEO, Co-Founder, SafeCatch
“Our baby boy Dylan loves Safe Catch tuna right out of the can. It feels great to feed him tuna that builds his brain without the fear of unknown mercury levels. I believe purity is a key link to health and biodiversity. I want to protect purity in our oceans, lakes, and rivers for the next generation.”
What else is awesome about Safe Catch?
- Safe Catch is non-GMO and BPA free and dolphin safe
- Safe Catch tuna is traceable from catch to can and they only buy from captains whose fish come from managed and sustainable stocks
- Their limit for Safe Catch Elite Wild Tuna is ten times (10x) stricter than the FDA mercury action limit and their limit for Wild Albacore Tuna is three times (3x) stricter than the FDA mercury action limit
- If one fish doesn’t meet their purity standards they don’t buy it
- They don’t add any fillers or additives, unless where salt is noted, they don’t add anything except tuna.
I can’t see myself purchasing any other brand now other than Safe Catch. If you want to make the most awesome tuna salad, tuna casserole, tuna tomato and bacon sandwich or tuna melt, go to this link for the Safe Catch store finder.

“I want people to have access to affordable and healthy seafood. The choices consumers make impact our food and ecosystems. I think people are excited to implement solutions to protect purity. My goal is to put the need to test for impurities out of business.”
