got some of these a few weeks back for this price
great price
Got the same about 5 weeks ago good date on them as well
The least environmentally friendly of all the Tuna Brands - could well be a combo of tuna/dolphin flakes. Shamefully bad in fact, and they have failed to deliver on repeated promises to improve fishing practices. Good price though, if you don't worry about such things.
I take it John West's other products are sourced from drains then?

Well, that would be much more friendly than their current practices, although maybe its the method they use as they refuse to specify how the fish were caught on the cans. According to Greenpeace, John West promised to use 100% sustainably caught tuna in their cans by the year 2016. Actual value of sustainable fish in John West cans in 2016: 1%. Apparently they are the lowest ranked of all brands - with Sainsbury's own brands being the best (by a long distance).

"According to Greenpeace" Credibility severely damaged by Brent Spar fiasco.

Besides that, why the great fuss about dolphins? I suspect you and many other dolphin cuddlers don't give a moment's thought as to how other fish you eat meets its untimely end.

Believe it if you want to, ignore it if you don't. Its all reported every 2 years and you can find it online (warning - it may change your shopping habits). And yes, of course people who care about a sustainable world pay attention to the source of their fish, and buy it appropriately. Of course, we can only try, the info provided is not always as accurate as it should be.

Ok. Hide behind the source, which is irrelevant to your argument, but ignore how they're caught.

What are you on about? The sustainability report includes fishing methods - thats one of the key factors, Pole & Line = Highly sustainable, Drag nets = Environmental disaster. Tuna cans do not have to state the method used for fishing on them, if they don't state "pole & line" caught, then they are likely to be non sustainable methods. Terms like "Dolphin Friendly" are not an indication of good fishing practices. Wishing I never said anything now.....

"I suspect you and many other dolphin cuddlers don't give a moment's thought as to how other fish you eat meets its untimely end." was what I said. You, and others like you, are fixated on tuna/dolphins. What about a poor old cod?

"other fish" was in the context of dolphin being associated with catching tuna, which is a fish.

Cod don't live in the same environment as tuna, they live in cold water, and also in deeper water. Accidental by-catches from cod fishing are much less unlikely - the problem there is about the amount taken. Thats also the problem with some tuna,but another big problem is the dolphins/sharks/any large marine creature that shares the tuna's home, due to lazy/cheap fishing practices.

You're not even close to understanding the point I'm trying to make which is that you dolphin huggers don't seem to be bothered how any other fish are caught and focus in on tuna where Flipper might end up being caught. ALL fishing has problems of by catch. ALL fishing has an element of cruelty - inevitable when you capture and kill any living animal, yet you only seem to be bothered if Flipper is involved.

And if you got off your sofa and did some research, you'd find that dear old Flipper is a fairly murderous individual, perfectly capable of killing his fellow dolphins as well as porpoises. He also tends to play with his food while it's still alive.

You seem to have a major obsession with Dolphins - let it go. I only used that as an example as the most high profile victim of the tuna industry. I could bore you to death with info on fishing practices and the impact on marine ecosystems (I studied it as part of my degree), but I really can't be bothered.

I'll just remind you

You probably would bore me to death, as if it was part of your degree (what in?) it was probably a right load of fish meal.
