The global tuna industry is out of control. In a relentless search for profit, tuna suppliers have been caught doing anything to save a buck — including forcing people to work on fishing boats in horrific conditions, for little or no pay. Aggressive fishing practices overfish our oceans while capturing and killing thousands of sharks, sea turtles, and other untargeted animals.
What’s worse, a lot of this is happening to feed cats.
Mars, the biggest pet food company on the planet, and owner of Whiskas, gets its seafood from notorious tuna giant Thai Union. Thai Union has been haunted by recent scandals of human rights abuses and destructive fishing, which means our cats could be eating bad tuna.
Mars claims to be committed to sourcing sustainable fish, and promoting human rights, but refuses to say where its seafood comes from. Tell Mars to come clean about what’s in its Whiskas and prove that it’s not feeding cats bad tuna.
