Canned tuna has been a great ally in our pantries during the pandemic. But, regardless of the market exceptionalities caused by the pandemic, we cannot ignore that, for a long time, this product has been a victim of its nutritional success. Tuna is rich in Omega-3 and it also contains minerals, proteins, and vitamin B12, among other advantages.
This year it is being celebrated under the theme “Our Tuna, Our Heritage”.
In December 2016 the United Nations General Assembly officially voted to observe the Day in its resolution 71/124. No doubt this movement will underline the importance of conservation management to ensure that they have systems, equipment to prevent stocks of tuna from crashing.
There are several countries that depend upon tuna resources for food security and nutrition, economic development, employment, livelihood, culture etc. On May 2, 2017 the first World Tuna Day was recognised.
