What is the significance of the Dolphin-Safe certification?

Over the decades, millions of dolphins worldwide have been caught as bycatch in tuna fishing. In order to put an end to this bycatch, the Dolphin-Safe certification has been created. In short, the Dolphin-Safe certificate is your guarantee that the product meets the requirements for dolphin-safe fishing, but although the certification has saved many dolphins, it also has another downside.

The certification that has saved millions of dolphins

When the fishermen set sail in search of tuna, they no longer look for dolphins on the surface of the water. In the past, it was very common for fishermen to keep an eye out for dolphins because the tuna often swam below them. In order to avoid the large amount of bycatch of dolphins, they instead switched to more selective catching methods and legislation in the area, which resulted in a significant reduction in mortality among dolphins.

The USA was the first to introduce the Dolphin-Safe certification in the late 1980s, and subsequently several countries have followed suit worldwide. To become part of the Dolphin-Safe certification, the fishery must comply with a number of requirements and legislation. For example, chasing shoals and using large nets when fishing for tuna is no longer allowed, as the dolphins will otherwise become entangled in the net and die.

Although Dolphin-Safe protects the dolphins, in some fisheries there is still no guarantee that other marine animals, such as sea turtles, have had to die. Therefore, as a consumer, you should still be critical when you stand in the supermarket and have to choose canned tuna for dinner.
