Tuna and Mercury

We get our tuna from Chris at Barnacle Bill's on the Oregon coast.

Everything Barnacle Bill's does is amazing.

Chris and I had a long chat about his tuna and mercury. Here is what you need to know:

These tuna are young, this means that because they have not been swimming around the sea for very long, they have not had a chance to eat many fish that are high in mercury. This means that they, themselves, are low in mercury

If you want to know more about mercury and fish, please look here at the FDA's brand new guidelines

Sean and I agree that because the tuna are so small, they would fit in the "Best Choices" category, 2-3 servings per week.
