Averages 600mg EPA and DHA Omega 3 per serving.

Firm in texture with a rich, clean taste, Wild Planet Albacore Wild Tuna is remarkably delicious any way you enjoy tuna – on a sandwich, in a Lemony Tuna Melt or atop a Salad Nicoise. We simply hand pack a raw tuna steak seasoned with a touch of sea salt into each can, without added oil, water or fillers. Our tuna is cooked just once to retain all of the natural juices.  It is rich in Omega 3 oils and is lower in mercury due to the smaller fish we catch. Please don’t drain our tuna – the juices enhance your meal with pure flavor. A Wild Planet tuna sandwich just may be the best you’ve ever tasted!

    Wild Planet has the best tuna available anywhere. What’s even better, it’s nearly $1 per can cheaper at my local market (HEB) than by direct order.

    Best tasting tuna in the world. I was at Costco indulging on the sample food stations and came across this little wonder. This tuna tastes so good you can literally eat it straight out of the can. Great product and I’m a costumer for life. Keep it up Wild Planet

    My favorite tuna. I eat it mixed with Olive oil, balsamic vinegar, tumeric, and pepper. Simple, super satisfying, and healthy! This is the best tuna!

    Best TUNA period. Taste, smell, texture, once cooked in its own juices. Delicious.

    About two years back at Costco, I decided to splurge a bit and go with this tuna. I know albacore is typically more expensive than chunk light, but something about reading the can made it seem worth it. It certainly was! I’ve never gone back to ordinary tuna and never will. Even when I can’t make it to Costco, I’ll pay premium price at local supermarkets for this tuna. I’ve even gotten coworkers hooked on it. Be it straight from the can with a little fresh pepper and rice crackers, nicely spruced up for a sandwich or over salad, this is simply the best tuna there is!

    I used to buy this at Costco but they stopped carrying it. I tried the Costco replacement brand but hated it. Thankfully, I found it online and am enjoying my go-to WFM lunch again 🙂

    Found this at Walmart and I love it. Put some organic mayo in it and ate it in a bowl. It doesnt have that awful aftertaste that the other brands have. Very satisified with this.

    This tuna is amazing! I was looking for healthy wild caught tuna to lower the risk of mercury and am so glad that I found your website online. The taste is so much better then any other conventional canned tuna that I’ve tried. I strongly recommend this to anyone!

    I’m on a low sodium/low sugar diet and just discovered your tuna yesterday at ShopRite. I was amazed that it didn’t have a strong odor like others I’ve had. I like that it has lower mercury and no added sodium.
    Love that it is nonGMO and isn’t caught in nets. My new favorite tuna. I’ll be buying this from now on.

    Found this @ costco. I love the product. I was very happy to find a sustainable option. I love tuna’s high protein but most canned tuna is gross, and looks, smells, and tastes like wet cat food. Not this brand! I hope Costco continues to keep it!

    I came across your tuna at our local Costco and have to say it is the best tuna ever!. Unfortunately Costco does not carry it anymore. Highly disappointed. Wild Planet you are the BEST!

    Seriously the chicken of the sea! This is the best canned tuna I’ve ever had in my life.

    FINALLY! I have found a tuna fish that my family can eat, do to medical reasons. Just wanted to say thank you. Cost more here, but well worth it.

    I HATE TUNA.The scent. The taste…. YUCK (I used to throw away my sisters cans of tuna when we lived together, so I wouldn’t be subjected to the smell)

    I was given a sample of WPs WILD ALBACORE TUNA… WOW. I Couldn’t believe all they added was some EVOO, salt & pepper. (& a tiny bit at that!) Took another sample because it was unreal to me that I enjoyed it that much… That’s when I realized, my life had just begun. THE POSSIBILITIES this little BPA free can, delicious, GMO FREE sustainability caught product is presenting to me is UNREAL. I’m eating it in a salad as I type this & can go on forever about how much I love thou. WP please never leave us. I couldn’t imagine life without you.

    Yours truly,

    This is the best tuna ever packed in a can! Tried some a couple years ago at a running expo and then couldn’t find it in stores. Disappointing…then an email arrives about the “value vault” and for the price of ordinary tuna you get this marvelous product. Clean, non fishy tasting, fresh and delicious. Bought one case and the next week checked back in to stock up on more as it is still hard to locate near us. Plus the normal sized can hold a lot more tuna and much less water than ordinary store brands. Everyone should try it at least once and see if you don’t agree! It can be found at some walmarts, too.

    This product is fantastic. Best tuna product available (i’ve tried many) – and a staple of our family’s diet.

    Great taste, great quality! I’ve never been a huge tuna fan because of the fishy kind of taste, so I normally throw some mayo on it. BUTTTT I ate this tuna straight out of the packet. In other tuna brands I would always find a few scales mixed in with the meat , but I have yet to find any in Wild Planets. I’m super excited that Walmart is carrying it now! I will be buying it by the cases!!! Eating healthier has never been easier!
    Thanks Wild Planet!

    This is the best tasting tuna I’ve ever had! I stopped eating tuna for a while until I found this brand, that practices sustainable and safe fishing methods. My only concern is that this tuna is placed into the “organic/naturals” section of most grocery stores. I think it should be placed in the “Tuna” section, or at perhaps in both areas. I couldn’t find it for the longest time because I was looking in the tuna section, but I refused to buy any of that other crappy tuna! I finally found it in the organics/natural.

    I have been wanting to try WP for sometime know and never did because our Kroger store did not carry and I really don’t like going to muliple grocery stores. Well, today at my Kroger WHAT DID I FIND! WP!!! so excited just came home had a sandwich and it was the best ever! Worth every penny!!!

    I have never eaten canned tuna but I am 7 months pregnant and trying to eat more DHA omega-3. This was absolutely fantastic! It is a couple dollars extra per can and worth every penny! The taste is fresh and it is great plain or on a whole wheat wrap with diced avocado, chopped celery, sliced apple, and dill! Will definitely become a pantry staple in our house!

    WOW WOW WOW – I just tried this tuna for the first time, and I will never eat any other canned tuna again. This tuna is so flavorful. Also comes in a non BPA can. I can’t wait to try some of your other products.

    I had neurological and other brain fog related symptoms. when I eliminated fast food, junk food, soda, etc, I felt better as some symptoms lessened but when I started eating Wild Planet Tuna, and the other WP fish, I noticed improvements in cognitive function, memory, better posture, and better overall feeling within. The symptoms lessened even more and I am a more happier person. I think the natural DHA and EPA in WP products really did wonders for me. It definitely is higher quality compared to other brand-name canned goods. I hope Wild Planet continues to keep their quality high because I will never stop buying. The nutrients are here and that is what is important.

    The absolute best tuna ever placed in a can! No matter how you use it this will make the best tuna dish or sandwich you’ve ever had.

    great ! worth the money.

    Sorry Charlie indeed! Hands down the best canned tuna available in the US and well worth the price. Tastes fantastic straight from the tin. Just mixed a can of albacore with a bit of minced white onion, 1/2 avocado diced, maybe 1/2 tsp of sour cream and equal bit of mayo, a swirl of EVOO and fresh cracked pepper. With dill crackers. Delicious. Thanks WildPlanet!

    This is the best tuna EVER! I used to eat tuna but after a bad food experience as a child, I had been terrified to try it again. Most times, the smell of canned tuna triggers my gag reflex. I read about Wild Planet Tuna and it is so delicious! I was concerned about the price as it’s higher than regular brands but it is worth every penny. Thank you for giving me a new item to bring for my packed lunches. 🙂

    I would like to tell you guys how thankful i am! 1. This IS the best canned tuna EVER!!! 2. Finally i eat tuna again, i stopped because i felt ashamed to eat tuna. The mass seafood production is destructing our oceans and i didn’t want to be part of it. Until i found your guys’ cans on the shelf of my store. Thanks for our oceans, thanks also to give a job to our fisherman! and finally thank you very much for me, because i can enjoy tuna again.

    Better than the name brands, that’s for sure. I hate taking gigantic Omega 3 capsules, so I try to eat more WP tuna, plus I empty a capsule or two into my tuna salad.

  32. 5 out of 5


    This Tuna is absolutely great. The taste is like no other Tuna in a can. I really could not believe how great it tasted. Wild Planet take president over other can tuna. It pricey but the freshness and quality it worth the price in my opinion. Way go Wild Planet. ***** Stars 😉

    I’ve never been big on tuna, so when I finally decided to start eating healthy, I looked for a good source and came across Wild Planet.

    Easily the best quality and taste I’ve ever had and this brand has really got me into eating healthy! Wild Planet’s conservation efforts only make me more confident in purchasing and talking up its products.

    Keep it up and thank you for providing an excellent product that is well worth the price!!

    I love the tuna but why do they process it in Vietnam?

    This tuna is amazing!! It is loaded with protien and it tastes so fresh. It is better than any other canned tuna that I have had. I have told so many people about it. It is worth every penny, I promise!!

  36. 5 out of 5


    Once Costco started carrying it, we tried it. It is absolutely the best tuna ever. I was in a jam once and had to quick buy a can of my previous favorite brand, what a difference. Wild Planet is the only canned tuna to eat!

  37. 5 out of 5


    I just tried your tuna for the first time this past week, and all I can say is, “Well done!” The quality is incomparable! The taste is sheer perfection! You have a customer for life!

  38. 5 out of 5


    I love this tuna. It has a great flavor from all the health fat in it! So different from any other canned tuna I’ve tried-in a good way. It’s worth the price.

    This tuna is the best tasting canned tuna I have ever had. Very high quality! Also impressed by the BPA free can lining- exactly what I was looking for! So happy this product is sold at Costco at a good value price too 🙂

    This is the absolute best tasting Albacore Tuna ever! So good to be able to trust a company whose practices keep their fish products lowest in mercury, in a no BPA can, yet so high in Omega 3’s! Good nutrition, esp during pregnancy! Worth the $.
