I have just read a post on another forum which is about a very well known tinned tuna which has changed its source name on its tins from North Atantic to North Pacific because this tuna is cheaper (due to the concerns over Pacific sourced fish, sardine fishing is banned in the Pacific in fact all fishing should be until 2016 or beyond). In light of this he feels that no tinned tuna is safe to eat. I feel that this information could be very important for pregnant/breastfeeding mothers indeed all children and adults. Also mediterranean sourced fish tested highest for mercury, not just spanish mackeral which has been known and avoided by fisheries for years - but now sea bass, Atlantic King mackeral,cod and other species, these levels continue to rise year-by-year.
