The boats and expert crews cruise around Ghana, the Maldives and the Seychelles, all the while looking out for shoals of our fishy friends. The most common type of tuna we catch is called Skipjack. They can weigh anything between 3-6kgs and like to feed on smaller fish like crustaceans, molluscs and other difficult-to-spell sea creatures.
At John West we’re committed to fishing for our tuna using only the most responsible and efficient methods. That’s why we work so closely with industry bodies. Together we are creating a sustainable source of seafood for all and we’re proud to be playing our part in it.
Once we’ve caught the fish, they are frozen and stored on our boats straight away to preserve their freshness. Then, when we return to dry land, they’re unloaded and transferred for sorting. And, shortly after that, they’re packed and prepared for distribution.
In fact, the hardest part of the whole boat-to-plate process is deciding which of our delicious recipes you’re going to choose. They don’t say tuna is the most versatile fish for no reason now do they? Back to Top
