A can of tuna might be small in size, but Australians consume a whopping 250 million a year. The thing is, John West, Coles and other brands don’t actually catch their own fish. Like many brands, they buy from Thai canneries supplied by huge fishing fleets in the Pacific. By shifting the Australian market, we have had a major impact on the way these fleets fish. And that in turn makes a big difference for our oceans and the millions of people in the Pacific who rely on them for food and employment.
