Origin and Market

Unloading tuna on to dock 2 Tri Marine supplies tuna raw material to the largest tuna packing companies in the world. Fish is delivered directly to the canneries by fishing boats and by refrigerated carriers which collect the tuna from the fishing vessels in ports near the fishing grounds.

Tri Marine contracted and affiliated purse seiners can be found fishing for skipjack and yellowfin in the Eastern Tropical Pacific off the west coast of Latin American, the Western and Central Pacific Ocean, the Indian Ocean and the Atlantic Ocean.

This diversity of fishing grounds reduces the risk of interruption in supply due to temporary shortages caused by the vagaries of fishing.
