Call for supporting Members

Your support will help us keep delicious tunas forever!

Tunas are popular in Japan as a fish for sashimi and sushi while canned tuna and steak are other popular styles for use in other countries.
In recent years, there has been a concern about over-exploitation of tuna resources as the consumption of tunas has been increasing. Your support will be very much appreciated so that the over-exploitation is prevented and tunas can be utilized in a sustainable manner.
