Safcol Sustainability

Our Mission is to lead the way in Responsible Fishing

Safcol was the first major brand available in grocery supermarkets to introduce responsible fishing into the Australian market, back in May 2011, a move that influenced change by other brands in the industry. Safcol has made a pledge to do everything possible to protect the health of our oceans. So now you can enjoy great tasting tuna and protect fragile marine life. Safcol Tuna is caught either by Pole & Line one fish at a time or without the use of fish aggregating devices, FAD FREE to minimise the impact of fishing on marine life

Safcol Sustainability Actions

We Partnered with Greenpeace in 2011

We worked with Greenpeace to launch Responsible Fishing into Australian supermarkets with the launch of our Pole and Line caught tuna range. We have subsequently changed the canned tuna market in Australia.

Protecting Marine Species and Tuna Stocks for the future

Safcol realises that the ocean is our business, and if we overfish tuna stocks and in the process destroy other marine life, we are destroying our own source of income. That is why we changed the way we fish, and have continued to lead the way in responsible fishing. We work closely with fishing vessels that catch our fish and do not purchase from any illegal fishing vessels.

FAD free fishing helps ptotect marine species

Fish Aggregating Devices also known as Fish Attracting Devices or 'FADs' for short cause destruction to marine life, when coupled with huge purseine nets, hauling up other species like turtles, and rays in the tuna catch. The combination of net fishing and FADs is what destroys our ocean life. Safcol does not use this deadly combination, we believe in fishing responsibly.
