Great price must be store specific, £4 in my local

That's a great price. Is the offer limited to one per customer ?

I post this every time John West or Princes deals come up, but I'll carry on...

AVOID

John West STILL refuse to move away from purse net fishing, incredibly destructive and wasteful fishing practice. All UK supermarket own brand tuna is line and pole caught now. No need to buy this.

Well said pumpyjoe4

This ^^^

Look for the MSC certified logo on the fish you get. It's very common in Sainsburys and Tesco have more MSC products now than they did a year ago. John West can get lost until they think about the environment over their huge profits. More people need to look into where their fish originates from.

Although fishing practices are a concern Id be concerned with the recent testing that found 15 out of 15 tunas tested in the pacific were positive for radiation.
Make sure its Atlantic tuna or you will be poisoning yourself.:|

15 fish?

great sample size

Cold, purely for the ecologically bad fishing practice John West use.

15 fish?great sample size


Would you have preferred it if the scientists had gone out and killed say 1000 of these great fish instead ? What a waste of life that would have been to only get the same results.
Fish caught for testing cannot enter the food chain so they would have been dumped back in the sea .

All the tuna were wiped out two years ago. So what you get in these tins are something else

Agreed 100%! I buy Sainsbury's own brand - a little bit more expensive, but worth it in terms of how the fish is caught.

To add my tuppence worth - agree re aiming for pole and line. Tesco have their "value" chunks in brine, separate tins, about 85p a tin. These are very nice & identical to the major brands.
They also have "oriental & pacific" 4 pack for £3. This says dolphin friendly but not pole & line so I presume also net caught?
My limit is normally £1/can absolute max so the value ones are fine when we're happy with brine.

Yes - there was something recently in the news about the Oriental & Pacific Brand at Tesco - that it wasn't really dolphin-friendly (due to NOT being fished by pole and line), so I wouldn't buy them. We usually buy Sainsbury's Basics Tuna Chunks - 90p a can.

Don't you understand how hot/cold voting on HUKD works?!! You shouldn't vote as regards ethical practices or from an eco point of view. You are voting purely on whether this is a good deal for this product, not whether you personally like it or would buy it.

Not in ASDA Atherton.

HUKDers may vote hot or cold based on their opinion of a deal, not just on a current price vs typical/usual or other purely fiscal comparison. The large number of voters (and 'weighted' system) should promote anything 'genuinely hot' up the rank.

I will not be buying, on etical grounds

Only buy pole and line. And if you can switch to eating smaller fishes!

I will not be buying, on etical grounds

I will be buying on poverty grounds which were caused by this government, I don't care about your ethical grounds mate.

As much as I like to buy as cheap as poss, a couple of pence ain't gonna break the bank, poverty or no; especially when there are deals about like this. Hot for the price, cold for the product.

Yes, HUKD members may vote hot or cold based on their opinion of a deal, NOT the product or their personal likes or dislikes. On principal, I don't buy eggs from caged hens. I always buy free range or (at a push) barn eggs, but never, ever caged. However, if a member posts a deal for caged or 'value' eggs at a great price I will obviously vote hot as it's a good deal for those who choose to buy the product. Just because I don't buy it doesn't mean that others shouldn't - that's for them to decide. Similarly, just because I don't buy it, that doesn't mean that it's not a great deal for those who do. Voting is all about the deal (price/quantity/freebies. etc) for a certain product, NOT about the product itself.

Voted hot if dolphins are so smart they would avoid the nets, joking of course but still voted hot , go join greenpeace or some other 2 faced bunch of scruffy retards instead of moaning on a deals site.

HUKDers may vote anyway they want for whatever reason they want. Using your example I may vote a deal for caged hens eggs cold if my opinion of the deal is that is not 'special' even if those eggs are half the price they are in some other shops. I do not need to justify my vote (although it's suggested people state a reason when voting cold) in the same way that others do not need to justify promoting the sale of those same caged hens eggs by voting hot. If a lot of members (and/or specific members) vote hot then the caged hens eggs deal will get hot (maybe scrambled or even boiled) despite that being a bad thing in my opinion. This is even before you consider people who may vote just for fun/laughs or to help/hinder another member's deal or just by accident.

Sorry, I don't agree with your reasoning. Members surely shouldn't vote for whatever reason they want? The vote should be for whether or not it's a good deal, not whether they like or approve of the product. The name of the site is Hot UK Deals, nothing to do with approving on ethical or moral grounds or your personal likes or dislikes! If I didn't like Heinz Beans then should I vote cold if they are on a half price offer? If I don't approve of Amazon's tax position or working conditions should I vote cold if they have an amazing price offer on something I want? In both cases, no of course not - the vote should be hot. The whole aim of HUKD is to find and share bargains and save money. As 'scousethief' says above, it's a deals site! If you are on some ethical or moral crusade then perhaps HUKD is not the place for you.

Perhaps a mod could give an opinion or guidance here?

Members vote how they wish, that is just how it is. A deal you think is great may be perceived as rubbish by someone else or vice versa, and that may have everything or nothing to do with how much cheaper it is than at such-and-such a shop or how much it was at the same shop 2 weeks ago or even because an AV receiver is make by Onkyo instead of Sony. As I have already said: the system is designed so that the genuinely hot deals should get hot. It doesn't work all the time but it's good enough for what is, after all, just a hot deals site (no offence Paul et al.)

P.S. A reply to personal comments: If I am on an ethical crusade (which I am not) then you, Lou, are my companion on it because you also do not like eggs from caged hens, but I don't think that is any reason for either of us to leave HUKD. For the record, most of the time value/price is the main reason behind my vote but not always.

Sorry to OP, I didn't expect such a lengthy off-topic exchange. Not voted either way.

I got the osprey tuna in store yesterday for 50p per can, unfortunately they don't have them online, but they're dolphin friendly
