The UK is the second highest consumer of tinned tuna in the world, consumming the equivalent of more than 700 million tins of tuna in 2006 alone.

Fishing practices used by the global tuna industry are contributing to the sharp decline of populations of sea turtles, sharks, rays and other marine animals. Marketing campaigns attempt to make tuna fishing look like a quaint cottage industry, but the truth is that the tuna trade is all about big business.
