Protecting You, and Our Oceans

Protecting You, and Our Oceans

Mercury levels vary from fish to fish and species to species. Two exactly same-sized fish, of the same species, from the same school can have drastically different mercury readings. This is the seafood conundrum. So how can anyone know which fish are safe and which have raised mercury levels? The answer is, unless you literally test every tuna or salmon there is currently no way to know. Safe Catch does test each and every tuna or salmon it hand selects, prior to packaging – a revolutionary technological innovation. This proprietary technology is so robust, it has been internationally certified by the AOAC, a leading independent scientific certification organization. Safe Catch Elite has a strict mercury limit set 10x lower than the US FDA action limit and averages 25x lower. With international certification of its processes, Safe Catch has become the global leader in understanding mercury levels in tuna and salmon, across several species, with over 5 million fish tested. No other company or government agency on the planet has a published database this complete. For reference, Safe Catch tests more fish in a single shift of production than the US Government has tested in their history. A strong comparison for a company determined to care for consumer health.

Scientifically Proven & Family Trusted

Safe Catch is the only brand endorsed by the American Pregnancy Association (APA), because developing brains thrive with Omega-3 fatty acids that do not contain unsafe levels of mercury. As the only brand of seafood to demonstrate meeting the Consumer Reports Low Mercury Criteria for vulnerable populations (expectant and nursing mothers, developing children), Safe Catch achieved the APA certification. This is yet another reason why families trust Safe Catch tested seafood, and clearly have the confidence of knowing they are providing consistent nutrition for their loved ones.

Quality, Nutrition & Flavour

To build flavour naturally, chefs start with high quality protein and cook it slowly via Sous Vide. Safe Catch has learned from this technique to develop a proprietary single cook process that takes advantage of a controlled slow cooking method. The highest quality sashimi grade fish are hand selected, tested for mercury, filleted, and carefully packed into cans and pouches. The time, attention, and care that goes into this process ensures that every Safe Catch product starts with high quality clean protein as the standard.

Sashimi Quality: Safe Catch takes the time and care to hand-cut each fish and carefully prepare it for cooking. Mindfully grading, testing, and selecting each fish is an important part of delivering a premium product.

Slow Cooked – Once: Chefs know slow cooking protein (Sous Vide) develops natural flavour and texture, so Safe Catch emulates this process. Nothing artificial is added, and Safe Catch’s wild, sustainably caught fish are slow cooked only once for nutrient retention.

Naturally Nutritious: Retaining vital oils is an important part of the Safe Catch difference. When opening a can or pouch, do not drain but take a fork and flake the fish in the container.  In a matter of moments, all the juices will reabsorb into the meat. This is because nothing has been added and these juices contain the omega-3’s (DHA/EPA) and omega-6’s that are so sought after in fish. Carefully crafting seafood that benefits you is what motivates the Safe Catch team.

Safe Catch carefully prepares the best canned seafood that nature has to offer. No other company does this for you and this is how Safe Catch tuna chose the name “Elite.”

Protecting You, and Our Oceans

Safe Catch is an Ocean Wise Seafood Program Partner, and all of our salmon and albacore products are Ocean Wise Recommended. Partnering with Canadian ocean stewards is a natural outcome of our fishing methods and care for wild ocean fish stocks. We are committed to fishing species rated Green (Best Choice) or Yellow (Good Alternative) by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program and our fishing practices are amongst the most sustainable. We are proud to maintain the NOAA Certificate of Origin and Captain’s statements that verify our adherence to the Ocean Wise criteria and Seafood Watch Sustainability standard for every catch of tuna that is used for Safe Catch Products.

Safe Catch Story – Founded on Care, Grounded in Science

Safe Catch’s inspired beginnings were brought to life by our founder’s care for his Mom, when she developed mercury poisoning from eating a daily regimen of albacore tuna. As a scientist in training, Sean sprung into technical action, determined to prevent this from happening again to his Mom or any other moms, infants, children, or anyone else.
