MIRA LOMA, Calif., July 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- New on deck… Blue Harbor Fish Co.™ pouches and cans combine the simple ingredients of sustainably-caught, wild Albacore tuna, water, a touch of sea salt or no salt added with no preservatives to bring back the essential fresh flavor of tuna. Blue Harbor Fish Co. is committed to offering the highest-quality Albacore Tuna from Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified fisheries in the South Pacific.
The Blue Harbor Fish Co. brand is dedicated to the sustainability of the world's fish stocks. Blue Harbor Fish Co. tuna is caught using long-line fishing methods and innovative tracking systems to help ensure the traceability of the catch all the way back to the boat. The tuna is then hand-selected and each pouch or can is packed with only water, or water and sea salt, offering a delicious, mild, clean flavor.
Both the brand's pouches and cans feature the internationally recognized Marine Stewardship Council "MSC" blue label so shoppers have independent third party verification of Blue Harbor Fish Co.'s commitment to certified sustainable seafood. The MSC is an international non-profit organization established to address the issue of unsustainable fishing and to safeguard seafood supplies for the future. Fishing has a major impact on the world's marine environment, which is why all MSC certified fisheries, including those where Blue Harbor Fish Co. Albacore is sourced, meet robust requirements to ensure fish stocks can continue indefinitely while preserving the ecosystem.
"The MSC is proud to partner with Blue Harbor Fish Co. to help achieve our vision of oceans teeming with life for future generations," said Brian Perkins, MSC Regional Director for the Americas. "The blue MSC label on this product means that it can be traced right back to a certified sustainable wild source and that it was caught responsibly with minimal impact on the environment."
The Blue Harbor Fish Co. products retail for approximately $2.69 per a pouch and $3.49 per a can (pricing will vary by retailer). Pouches and cans will shortly be available online and in the seafood aisle at your local grocery store.

Salt and pepper to taste
Place lettuce in large salad bowl or split between two small bowls.
Add blueberries and strawberries, and toss.
Mix wheat berries, onion and walnuts together in a small bowl. (This can be done ahead and stored in the refrigerator. A drizzle of olive oil may help keep the wheat berries from clumping.)
