  • What is My Tuna? Visitors are given an initial description of their tuna or other seafood species.
  • Where Was My Tuna Caught? These results include a world map showing the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) Area where the tuna or other seafood was caught, and a link to a species-specific stock status report from the International Seafood Sustainability Foundation (ISSF). 
  • What Fishing Method Was Used? This section includes both the fishing method and vessel size.
  • What Fishing Vessel Caught My Tuna? This information includes fishing vessel name, nation of registry and fishing trip start and end dates.
  • Where was My Tuna Processed and Canned? The can code indicates where the seafood was processed and canned, which may not necessarily be where it was caught. The processing method is subject to Genova’s strict compliance requirements andstringent Business Ethics and Labor Code of Conduct.
