Why is Raincoast’s Wild Albacore Tuna no ordinary tuna? We start by sourcing high-quality Pacific Northwest tuna from responsible hook & line fisheries, which minimizes unnecessary bycatch. It’s an important part of maintaining a sustainable fishery, and one of the reasons we were the first Canadian packaged retail seafood company endorsed by the respected Ocean Wise conservation program.
When it comes to putting tuna in the can, quality remains the name of the game. Raincoast’s Wild Albacore Tuna is hand-packed to ensure that you get the best of the fish in every can. Our tuna is cooked only once—during the canning process— to preserve its taste, natural oils, and nutrition. Typical canned tuna is cooked twice: once before canning and once during canning, so water or oil needs to be added to put moisture back into the fish. We don’t need to add anything back—it’s just natural tuna, and it’s ready for you to enjoy.

What is it that gives Raincoast Wild Salmon the advantage over other canned salmon?
All of our salmon is wild and caught in Canadian and US waters as part of a sustainably managed Pacific Northwest fishery. Our adherence to this is one of the reasons we were the first Canadian packaged retail seafood company endorsed by the respected Ocean Wise conservation program.
While you feel good about where the salmon is from, you can also feel good about how it is prepared. Our salmon is canned at the peak of freshness at our cannery in Nanaimo, British Columbia. We hand-pack and can the salmon with care to ensure that only the best salmon fills our cans. The result? Nutrient-rich, firm, flavourful, ready to eat wild salmon.
It is with a lot of pride that we’ve been producing top quality, delicious, sustainable seafood since 1995. We hope you enjoy our work!
