Reviews For Safe Catch Elite Wild Skipjack Tuna

Based on 38 Reviews

Great tuna!

This is the best tuna I have ever had. Good taste, solid meat, easy to drain.

- Jennifer

Best tuna, great price

I love that they test for mercury and knowing they use such high standards from the catch to the can gives me the peace of mind to really enjoy tuna again.

- Carrie


This was incredible !!

- Lori Winter

Tasty tuna!

My husband and I rather enjoyed this tuna, and we think it tastes better than conventional brands. We also feel better eating this because I'm pregnant; I need the omega-3s from fish, but we watch where our fish comes from, so a big win for Safe Catch!

- Jessi


The texture took some getting used to -- I'm used to canned tuna already being flaked rather than in a steak. But this is really not bad. And it does give me a little piece of mind knowing that the level of quality the brand is striving for.

- Sammy

Only Tuna I Will Buy

This tuna is the only tuna I purchase. The company tests each tuna for mercury and their standards are significantly higher than what is allowed by the FDA. I purchase through Thrive Market because it is convenient and affordable (their prices are great compared to grocery stores). I highly recommend this product and Thrive Market overall.

Good tuna

We like the nice and meaty tuna. Not all juice and shreds.

- John


Safe and delicious tuna. low mercury. I divide the can for 2 servings & eat about a can/week. Great!

- hope conyers

The best

This is the best tasting tuna I have ever eaten. As soon as I opened the can I could smell the difference, it smelled like fresh tuna unlike other solid pack tuna that has such a strong fish smell that is overwhelming and smells like its bad. I'll buy this again.

- Linda

taste was off

The taste and smell was very different. Family said to not buy again. We are use to healthy, dolphin friendly tuna but this was too different of a taste for us.

- Jamie

Great Tuna

Great Tuna, very meaty, barely have to drain, not too fishy tasting. I mix this with the Primal Kitchen Chipotle Avacado Mayo and it makes a great quick lunch. Beats anything you can buy in the store hands down. I order these on every Thrive order I place to keep on hand.

- Jessica

Very good

I love this tuna...much healthier than the typical store bought brand.

- cheryl


a little "fishier" smelling than another brand I've tried, but overall good taste and its meaty

- Yvonne

Great product!

I would buy this tuna again. It tasted great!

- Danielle

I like it!

It is not too fishy tasting like some of the cheaper kinds are and I appreciate it being lower in mercury. I have always used it in tuna salad and I do not find it dry.

- Frances

mercury tested tuna

I buy this because it is the only tuna I know of, which tests every piece of fish and guarantees the purity. It tastes great too.

- ND

Delicious and high quality tuna

Very impressed

- Clayton

Excellent Tuna

Great price and taste. The tuna flakes very easily and is well packed with tuna, no extra water taking up valuable tuna space!

- Kimberly

Best Tuna I've Ever Had

The end.

- Bethany

Delicious Tuna

Very happy with this tuna. I used it in a casserole I made for a buffet lunch and was told it tasted much better than regular supermarket tuna.

- Linda

Love this!

My favorite brand of canned tuna! It's very densely packed and goes great with some lemon juice, avocado oil mayo, salt, and pepper.

- Kat

Safe Catch Elite Wild Skipjack Tuna

Not as tasty as other brand. Probably won't buy again.

- Vivian

Safe Catch

Great product. I would definitely purchase again!

- janie deLeon

Best tuna I've found

I thought tuna of this quality was a thing of the past until I tried this.

- Margot

Love Safe Catch

I love Safe Catch and was excited to get it here for less. Highly recommend!

- Kristen

Feel great eating this!

Delicious, easy to prepare nutritious lunches on the go and I feel great knowing its low mercury and high DHA/EPA!

- Madeleine

Good product

I like the flavor, the quality, sustainability, and price.

- Wendy G.


Tastes delicious, and I like knowing that the mercury levels in the fish are guaranteed below .1 PPM (even lower than the other varieties of Safe Catch!). Originally, I was skeptical about trying the skipjack, since I read another review saying that the fish was dry, but that was definitely not my experience. It was great in an improvised tuna salad sandwich with capers, scallions, lemon, and olive oil.

- Rebecca

Best tuna ever

This is the best tasting albacore ever ! You do need to use more Mayo then the brands we're used to, but it's still the best tasting however you eat it.

- Lynn

Low Mercury!

I love the fact that I can make my delicious tuna salad all the time (to take with me on the go, which I always am!) and not worry about mercury.

- Madeleine

Mecury check

Finally a source that understands the importance and need to check for mercury and to keep it as low as possible in our foods

- Nicola

Low mercury in every can.

I respect this company for testing every fish that is packed into each can in order to ensure that their customers are consuming less mercury.

The taste in this Skipjack is great, however it was more dry than I had anticipated. It can be mixed with other ingredients to increase the moisture, but if you like to eat straight out of the can, be aware that it can be dry.

- Brandy Simpson

Tested, Mixed and Approved!

I spend extra time making sure that my fish is safe and not going to hard my body. This tuna is tested which I love! I maintain a very strict diet that depends on protein which this tuna provides. The can is also BPA free!!! Win-win!

The taste provide vs what I would buy at the local grocery is second to none. The flavor is much deeper and I can taste the sustainability by the fact that is not processed and that I don't need to drain it which saves the flavor!

P.S.- Mix it with some Avocado Mayo and pickles and you have a fabulous lunch salad!

- Seth Cox

Pleasantly Surprised

I bought this tuna because I knew it was safe to eat and I honestly wasn't too concerned with what it tasted like. Once I tried it, I was so impressed with how good it was! I used less condiments than I usually do on the generic brands. If you're thinking about trying this, you definitely should!

- R Jensen

Safe Catch = Less Mercury

Our family eats a lot of seafood, which we love, but I worry about getting too much mercury. It's great that they check all their fish. Just had an excellent tuna salad sandwich with shallots and cornichons. Really good!

- Jeanine

Great product

This is terrific tuna and knowing it's guaranteed to be lower in metals content makes it even better. Highly recommended.

- Rick

Great but with misprint error...

Here it says in the ingredients list Skipjack Tuna. However, when i received it there was table salt added to it. So there is an error here. I should read skipjack tuna, salt. And for such a conscious product one would expect sea salt over table salt.

- Hook

Would not recommend

I found this tuna dry and not flavorful. I was also disappointed to read on the can that they are packed in Thailand.
