Truly Sustainable

We believe Santo Amaro® is the MOST SUSTAINABLE canned tuna that exits. Here’s why. 

Unlike tuna caught using nets, Pole & Line tuna fishing doesn’t produce by-catch, zero catch is discarded, and tuna schools that are fished survive to reproduce and continue living on.

Artisanal Tradition

At Santo Amaro® fishermen use traditional poles made of natural bamboo, the same poles used by their ancestors.



Santo Amaro® sources tuna from fishing family owned and operated small Pole & Line tuna fishing boats.

Santo Amaro®  relies on close relationships with Pole & Line boat owners and crews making traceability and fishing method verification a simple and fully transparent process.

Artisanal Tradition

Collaborates with Pole & Line fishermen to improve efficiencies and support their survival.

Santo Amaro® supports fishing communities by packing our tuna in traditional fishing areas adjacent to where the tuna are caught, ensuring the freshest product possible.


Santo Amaro® guarantees that all of our products are only sourced from countries with responsible, democratic, and accountable governments.

Artisanal Tradition
