Hi I have researched this but can't find anything consistent. I believe risks shouldn't always be taken. I was once keen on eating raw oysters and clams but once I read even HEALTHY people can die from that virus it really makes you step back... (more)

Just as the title says. People talk about it, but I've never heard of people developing symptoms, or being diagnosed with mercury toxicity or anything like that. To me it seems like a bunch of scary hearsay, honestly. Prove me wrong. As it... (more)

I've been opposed to eating seafood my whole life. Not for a particularly good reason either; my dad didn't eat it, I was a daddy's girl, so I didn't either. As my Primal journey is progressing and I've learned that I like a lot of things I... (more)

Don't be scared off by mercury levels, [eating fish is a lot safer then not eating fish].1 I would suggest you avoid the pre-frozen filets you find in the forzen food isle in your grocer. If you can get fresh fish (whole fish is best IMO :))... (more)

Is tuna the only fish you buy? Personally, I'd minimize it. Our ancestors couldn't catch such huge fish, we didn't evolved eating that type of fish. But smaller fish, and shellfish, absolutely. Personally, the only fish I buy in cans are WILD... (more)

So, I've been Paleo since August or so, but not super strict or anything because I'm a broke college student on a budget and can't exactly afford grass-fed all the time. Anyways, I just started Whole30 three days ago and I've been eating tuna and... (more)

It's only been 3 days. If you feel like adding three days to make up for it, fine. But it doesn't matter. It's not like you've been eatin soy for the whole 30 days and are wondering why you're not seeing any changes. Just keep up with the... (more)

Hi Guys, Just wondering what you prefer with regards to canned tuna? Albacore, Yellowfin, or Skipjack (last 2 are known as light tuna i believe). I know that albacore has more omega 3s, but is higher in mercury generally. However some chunk... (more)

I'm not too worried about mercury in tuna (or fish in general), see below, but I am worried about BPA in cans. I haven't been able to find BPA free cans in Europe, but I've heard there are some in the... (more)

are tuna dying out? are they going extinct ? overfishing is happening with a lot of fish, but thats not the question. the question is this: if mercury poisoning were a problem, then wouldn't the tuna be affected in a massive way. Frogs are... (more)

Important: is it BPA free? That is the part I am most willing to pay for. I buy a gorgeous smoked local canned tuna as a treat, and there is a huge taste in texture/flavour even with their un-smoked. The flesh tastes "meat-ier" to me, and it just... (more)

I have procured, cooked and eated halibut collar - and it was awesome - it's a touch oilier than the rest of the fish - and it's super! I have made soup, pan fried as well as deep fried the collar (pieces). I would recommend it - and it's a... (more)

Hello Everyone. I am just curious in asking how many of us paleo folks over in the UK buy food from regular supermarkets, such as tesco, coop, etc. I am mainly wondering if people buy any store bought soups that are filled with good ingredients... (more)

Not much of a soup person but on other stuff: because of cost I make do with non-organic meat from supermarkets for the most part. The fat of that meat is a potential reservoir of nasty things I tend to get leaner things/cut off fat and add... (more)

A lot depends on the brand of canned tuna you are buying, since that determines the canning process. Tuna are initially frozen (especially if the vessel is far out at sea), then gutted and pre-cooked for 45 minutes to three hours. The fish are... (more)

Long-time lurker, first time poster! I'm looking for canned tuna, tested to be BPA-free. There are some places in the US that sell it, but I'd rather buy from Europe to save on shipping and customs, duties, VAT, and overall hassle. I live in... (more)

If you are buying your canned fish at Trader Joe's then you are probably all set. Word is that all their fish is in BPA-free cans.

I've been supplementing my canned sardine intake with some canned tuna - primarily for variety, but also on a lark to see if it also doesn't taste as bad as I had feared. Good news on that front, it's actually quite palatable! However I'm... (more)

Tuna isn't an oily fish*, it's pretty much by definition low fat, so on the one hand, these figures aren't worrying, but tuna certainly isn't a reasonable source for fish oil. A raw, fresh fillet of skipjack tuna (200g) is only going to contain... (more)

Canned fish is controversial , but remains popular among paleo enthusiasts, including Mark Sisson, especially canned salmon. Also, canned tomato products are popular. Many are attracted to the convenience of ready-to-eat canned foods, especially... (more)

This seems kind of cool, if you use a lot of canned foods. But even then, it kind of seems like a waste of money to me. If I don't eat it all, I just transfer the canned food to another container and pop in it the fridge. Cans kind of freak me out... (more)
