acquired the US legislation, the dolphin in fishing tragedy in the tropical Eastern Pacific that came to an end. SAFE is the use of driftnets, the “networks of death”, categorically prohibited. In addition, the SAFE support additional by catch reduction measures, such as the liberation of prisoners sea turtles or the prohibition of so-called “finning” shark (cutting off the fins alive) connected tuna companies and importers. Tuna is not the same tuna with regret and the EII repeated also in Germany in the media, often misleading reports on the subject of fishing techniques and sustainability of the tuna looks a certain lack of understanding. Because the German tuna canning industry used not only by the most endangered of the three Blauflossenthunarten. Learn more about this topic with the insights from Rio- Tinto Diamonds. Here skipjack tuna is fished mainly (Katsuwonus pelamis), which is not even one of the actual tuna. Skipjack is relatively robust compared to fishing pressure, he multiplies rapidly and is the current level of fishing is not threatened.

The ring NET used for catching of skipjack are among the fishing methods with the lowest in catch rates (unintentional catch of non-target species such as dolphins, sharks and sea turtles) at all. Again, there are those who call to make canned tuna from the shelves. We think that is wrong. Although concerns about fisheries are generally legitimate and more than appropriate from the point of view of the conservation of the heavily fished species, but German tuna canning trade, which marketed mostly skipjack tuna is dolphin friendly as well as sustainable. The compliance with the strict SAFE is constantly by our cooperation partners, the Association of the dolphins controlled the rescue in Germany.

SAFE is a program of the consumer can trust”, explains EII Project Manager Mark Berman. Cooperation rather than confrontation for the life in the oceans for more than three decades is the Earth Iceland Institute for the protection of whales, dolphins and one other marine animals, so that future generations can enjoy in them. Our success is based largely on that we cooperate in our efforts to reduce the harmful impacts of fisheries, with international bodies on the marine environment”, emphasizes Berman. In his opinion the experience have shown that German tuna canning and the German importers of canned tuna in international initiatives to protect dolphins, fisheries and the marine environment play a leading role and be totally wrong for the extinction of the tuna fished for sushi to the responsibility. Without SAFE, the oceans would be very much empty, there would be far fewer dolphins and less tuna with the corresponding downstream consequences for the entire ecosystem of the oceans.
