2. How was it caught or farmed?

Pole and Line – Atlantic Ocean (South African catches only)

Yellowfin tuna are caught using pole fishing or polling. In this type of fishing, rigid poles (2-3 meters) are attached to a feathered jig containing a barbless hook attached by a short piece of line Pole and line is a highly selective fishing method with low bycatch and discard rates and no negative impact on the benthic habitat or surrounding environment. Bycatch in the South African fishery tends to consist of other species of tuna, yellowtail or snoek.

Pelagic longlines (South Africa)
