Buying APR is a responsible decision for fishing, workers and the planet.

By looking for the AENOR APR stamp in tuna cans, you are acquiring a tuna that is internationally recognised as the only one with a stamp that guarantees the social and labour rights of fishing, according to the ILO Convention 188 on the fishing work, and that guarantees the best responsible fishing practices.
