Tuna Company is a family owned and operated gourmet canned tuna company.

Joe Sheean and his brother Ed started fishing together in 1965 and launched the IRISH MISS in 1975.  Joe's son Mike has often crewed, and now is the land-based operations manager and sales manager for the Pacific Fleet brand. The family's delight in fishing has always been the satisfaction of overcoming the challenges at sea and providing a quality product for people who love eating fish. All Pacific Fleet albacore have been troll-caught and fresh-frozen at sea on reputable, quality-oriented Pacific coast fishing vessels.

At a time when sustainable fisheries, healthy foods, and value are paramount in the minds of consumers, Capt. Joe is proud of his family's participation in the albacore fishery, and the fact that troll-caught albacore was recently given the highest rating by the Audubon Society as a sustainable fishery. Mike and and his wife Lisa (who handles customer orders) are thrilled that the mainstay of the business is repeat orders from satisfied customers who spread the word to their family and friends. See our recipe page.

Large canneries cook their fish twice for their processing convenience and profit, whereas we cook only once to preserve the healthful omega-3 oils and the delicate albacore flavor. American Tuna Company is truly a family operation with a love of the fishery and a commitment to quality.

Mercury conent in tuna has been in the news in recent years, and we mention with great pride that troll-caught albacore has far less mercury than the older, longline caught albacore used by the major canneries.  We have been testing our tuna every year and all of our tests have been well below the federal standards.

We chose the name "American Tuna Company" because our albacore tuna are caught by American fishermen in American waters, delivered to American ports, canned in America, and intended for American consumers. Nevertheless, we do encourage all albacore lovers to purchase our products, regardless of nationality!
