by inventing technology to test every single fish for mercury

(Sausalito, CA – October 18, 2016) The health, fitness, Whole30 and Paleo communities are hooked on Safe Catch tuna because of its superior purity, high protein, nutrients and taste. Safe Catch uses its proprietary technology to test every single fish for mercury and is the only brand to do so. Safe Catch Elite Tuna is the lowest mercury tuna on the market, tests as pure as wild salmon and is the Official Tuna of the American Pregnancy Association. Called “A Better Can of Tuna,” by Inc. Magazine, the “Tuna pick for kids” by Parents Magazine, and the “Best Choice for Clean Eating” by Muscle and Fitness Magazine, Safe Catch Elite tuna is ideal for pregnant women, kids and elite athletes and is now available in convenient On-the-Go single serve pouches.

Sausalito based Safe Catch Tuna has achieved explosive growth; the ‘re-invented’ tuna with better purity, better nutrients and better taste hit the shelves in the summer of 2015 and will be in 5,000 grocery stores by the end of 2016. Safe Catch tuna is hand cut and hand packed to retain nutrients and Omega 3 oils unlike conventional processed tuna that loses taste and healthy fish oils due to precooking and processing. Additionally, the sustainably caught tuna is slow cooked for superior taste.

The Paleo certified and Whole 30 approved tuna has become a portable favorite for athletes, fitness enthusiasts and health conscious audiences. “I’ve been carrying cans of Safe Catch tuna around in my gym bag as a post workout meal because it’s really pure, high in protein and full of nutrients and Omega 3s for recovery. The new pouches make it easier to pack and carry,” said Gray Maynard, UFC Fighter.

“You don’t need to drain the pouch,” said Co-Founder Sean Wittenberg. “The portable pouch is perfect for the gym bag or purse and you can mix and eat it right out of the pouch. Athletes and fitness enthusiasts also love the great taste!”

One 3-ounce pouch of Safe Catch Elite tuna contains 21 grams of protein, essential amino acids, Omega 3 oils, and no sugar nor carbohydrates. No water, fillers, preservatives, nor GMO-Soy broth is added to the wild Skipjack tuna, and every BPA-free pouch is loaded with vital nutrients including Iron, Magnesium, Niacin, Selenium and Vitamins B6, B12 and D.

Safe Catch hand picks premium wild tuna and tests each and every one to a mercury limit that is 10x lower than FDA action limit. It is the only brand of tuna that meets Consumer Reports’ “Low Mercury” criteria set for pregnant women and children.

Safe Catch supports many women’s associations and athletes across sports that include UFC, Cross Fit and triathlon. Most recently, the popular women’s health and fitness community, touted Safe Catch because of the amazing taste and purity.
