Greenpeace criticises Australian tuna brands

Tuna brands sold in Australia are engaging in fishing practices that harm turtles and endangered sharks, a report says.

Greenpeace also accuses most major brands of selling endangered yellowfin tuna, and failing to provide consumers with basic information about which tuna species are in their cans.

In a 14-page report on tuna sustainability, the environmental lobby group said Australia lagged behind UK when it came to tuna fishing practices.
