A quick guide to sustainable seafood in the south of France

Best Choices: Albacore and skipjack caught in the Pacific Ocean with trolls or polls. Handline caught Pacific Yellowfin is also good. In the mediterranean coastal areas, avoid locally caught tuna because tuna caught in the Mediterranean Sea is not sustainable. If in doubt let it go, because most tuna populations are overfished. Summary: Look for imported Pacific Albacore. In French: “D’où vient le thon ? Je ne mange que le thon albacore de l’océan pacifique.”
