Tuna Exchange

Bring us your Tuna!

Bring us your fresh caught tuna and exchange it for Merino’s canned albacore and pay a fraction of the regular price.

For Safety and quality the following are required to participate in the tuna exchange program.

1: The tuna must be bled at the time of landing the fish.

2: The tuna that you bring us needs to be whole and in the round.

3: The tuna needs to have an internal temperature of 40 degrees of less.

4: You will be required to complete a log of your trip information stating, fish landing times, vessel name, and that the tuna was handled correctly and stored properly during your trip.

5: If your fish does not meet these standards or appears that it was not handled correctly during the trip, we reserve the right to refuse the exchange. Remember we are going to process your tuna and exchange it with the next customer that wants to participate in the program.
