    Consumer Questions Answered

    How long are canned seafood products edible?
    Commercially canned food can be safely stored for several years as long as the can is not bulging, leaking or damaged. With prolonged storage, canned foods begin to become less palatable. After opening, any uneaten product should be removed from the can, sealed in a container and immediately refrigerated. The product should be used within 2-3 days.

    Why are my oysters green?
    The green color in oysters is actually not an abnormal color. During the harvesting season, the oysters are still growing and ingest a large amount of plankton while they are still lean. This makes the "green feeds" visible through their outer skin.

    I think I found glass in my canned seafood! What is it?
    These are struvite crystals and are formed by the natural, normal constituents of seafood after it is sterilized in the can. The crystals are no harder than ordinary table salt and can be easily scratched and crushed to a powder with the thumbnail. They will dissolve in a few minutes in warm vinegar, as they do in stomach acid.

    What is Crown Prince's Dolphin Safe Policy?
    They sell three types of tuna: albacore, tongol and yellowfin. Our suppliers strictly adhere to dolphin protection methods. Their tuna is certified dolphin safe by Earth Island Institute. Albacore is caught by long-line method, which poses no danger to dolphins. Tongol tuna is caught by purse seine net, however dolphins do not swim with these schools. Dolphins sometimes swim with schools of yellowfin tuna. All tuna catches, and particularly yellowfin catches are strictly monitored by independent observers. Each net set is certified as causing no harm to dolphins. No drift nets are used. The fishermen are not allowed to set their nets on schools of dolphin. In the event that any dolphins are present in the set, the fishermen are required to lower their nets to release the dolphins.

    Why is my Solid White Tuna not always white?
    While albacore is classified as "white" tuna, there are common variations in color from can to can. The color of albacore can vary from nearly white to light pink, beige, tan or occasionally a slight gray tinge. All of these variations meet established color requirements.

    Why did I find a bone in my tuna?
    Although every effort is made to remove them, bones are occasionally present in canned tuna. The loins are trimmed entirely by hand and are inspected several times for the presence of any bones which may have been missed. On occasion, a bone is embedded in the loin and may be overlooked. After the fish is canned, the high heat sterilization process softens the bones to the point that they are harmless and crumble easily.

    Why did I find shell fragments in my oysters?
    Because there is no machine that can shuck these little oysters properly, the work is all done by hand. Then, before packing, the product is spread on large trays and inspected. We strive for 100% removal of shell fragments, but just as there is an occasional piece of gravel in a bag of beans or a cherry pit in a can of pie filling, it is possible that occasionally a shell will be found in any variety of canned shellfish. However, what you describe is definitely not Crown Prince quality and we apologize for the inconvenience.

    Why are there scales on my sardines?
    Pilchard sardines have larger scales that do not soften as much as the scales on smaller sardines. These scales protect the fish from outside elements and are proof of the best quality and freshness. If scales are removed from sardines, the skin will soften and the fish will fall apart. The scales are edible and are a good source of calcium.

    Are your sardines real sardines or small fish?
    The FDA allows three types of fish to be called sardines: Brisling (sprats), ocean herring (kipper snacks) and pilchard. These three types of fish are cold water fish and contain omega-3 fatty acids, iron and calcium.

    Why are there bones and skin in my can of salmon?
    This is the traditional packing process for canned salmon that has been used for many years. The amount of bones and skin in canned salmon varies depending on the size of the fish. The high heat sterilization process softens them enough that they can be easily mashed and blended with the salmon. The skin and bones supply important nutrients.

    Why do the pull-tabs always break from the lid?
    If the tab is pulled before the score line is pierced, it will break off. Be sure to gently lift the ring and pop the seal by pushing the tab all the way forward until it touches the rim of the can.

     

    Sustainable Seafood

    Crown Prince is proud of their commitment to seek and source sustainably harvested fish certified by third parties. Please be advised that the reason some of our products are not assessed or certified yet is either due to lack of time on the part of a reviewing body (like Monterey Bay Aquarium) or lack of a unified group of stakeholders requesting assessment (such as Marine Stewardship Council.) Lack of assessment or certification does not automatically mean that a fish harvest is unsustainable. All countries from which they harvest fish have management programs in place to maintain a good harvest level; they want to have fish stocks for future generations just as they do.

    Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) is a global organization working with fisheries, seafood companies, scientists, conservation groups and the public to promote the best environmental choice in seafood. MSC has established a guide for sustainability. Assessments are done by third party firms and those passing can use the MSC logo under a logo use contract.

    The Monterey Bay Aquarium (MBA) Seafood Watch program helps consumers and businesses make choices for healthy oceans. MBA has established a guide for sustainability based on scientific research which is peer reviewed.

    Blue Ocean Institute is a conservation organization that uses art and literature to translate scientific information into language people can understand and use to make better choices on behalf of the sea.

    Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) works together with the United Nations system to support global sustainable development initiatives in order to secure responsible fisheries worldwide.

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    Are Crown Prince products available in BPA free cans?
    Some of their products are available in BPA free containers. We are working with our suppliers and can manufacturers to source BPA free cans and convert when possible.

    Are Crown Prince products sustainably caught?
    They are proud of their commitment to seek and source sustainably harvested fish certified by third parties. All countries from which they harvest fish have management programs in place to maintain a good harvest level; they want to have fish stocks for future generations just as they do.

    What are GMOs?
    GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organism, an animal or plant that has been altered using genetic engineering. Read our GMO Statement for more detailed information.

    Do Crown Prince products contain GMOs?
    Crown Prince products DO NOT contain GMOs. Canned fish is not a manufactured product, but is wild harvested from the oceans of our planet. Our customers can be assured that Crown Prince only offers the best that our oceans can provide - unadulterated by genetic modification.

    Is there mercury in canned tuna?
    Mercury is a naturally occurring element in the earth's crust, and therefore is also present in trace amounts in all living organisms.

    How much mercury is in canned tuna?
    In lab tests run between 2002 and 2004 by the FDA, the average level of mercury in canned light tuna is 0.12 ppm, and in albacore 0.35 ppm. The FDA has set as their action level 1 ppm of mercury. This level provides a wide margin of safety, as it is ten times the level at which the most sensitive people will experience health problems. For more information, visit our Mercury and Tuna page.

    What is omega-3?
    Omega-3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated essential fatty acids that are found predominantly in deep-sea salt water fish. These fatty acids are found in higher amounts in cold water fish. There is evidence of a number of health benefits from eating fish rich in these fatty acids.

    Do Crown Prince products contain MSG?
    Monosodium glutamate is used in Crown Prince and Ocean Prince crab meat, chopped and minced clams, and clam sauce. There is no MSG present in any Crown Prince Natural product. As always, anyone with food allergies or sensitivities should carefully read all labels.

    What is gluten?
    Gluten is a protein commonly found in many types of grains (specifically wheat, barley, oats and rye).

    Are Crown Prince products gluten free?
    Yes, all of their canned seafood products are gluten free and are not processed with any ingredients known to contain gluten. Crown Prince seafood products are listed as such by the Celiac Sprue Association. Please be advised that our packing facilities are not certified gluten free and cross-contamination could occur. As always, anyone with food allergies or sensitivities should carefully read all labels, especially products in sauces. On occasion, sauce formulations may change.

    What are Trans Fats or Trans Fatty Acids?
    Trans fats, or trans fatty acids are a type of fat formed when hydrogen is added to liquid oils under high heat to turn them into solid fats like shortening and stick margarine. These trans fats can increase the risk of heart disease by increasing the amount of LDL, or "bad" cholesterol, and lowering the amount of HDL, or "good" cholesterol in the bloodstream.

    BPA Free Cans

    Crown Prince is concerned about the issue of BPA (Bisphenol A) in cans. BPA has been used in can linings for decades to prevent food spoilage but could possibly act as an endocrine disruptor, mimicking estrogen and thereby disrupting the body's chemical message system. Recently the FDA decided not to ban BPA pending further study. While Crown Prince acknowledges the position of the FDA, we will continue to move forward, where possible, with our transition to BPA-free packaging. As always, our goal is to provide our customers the most sustainable, freshly harvested, and safely packaged canned seafood from around the world.

    The Crown Prince, Crown Prince Natural, and Ocean Prince lines include product packed in eight foreign countries as well as the United States. We therefore have to work in each locality with available canning materials. Several countries from which we import are strongly influenced by European Union (EU) standards; at this time the European Union does not consider the small amount of BPA in can linings a health issue. Due to this fact many can manufacturers in these countries do not stock adequate or consistent supplies, if at all, of BPA free cans. Crown Prince wishes to continue to be able to provide our customers good quality, modestly priced canned seafood with as little environmental impact as possible.

    Crown Prince is currently able to supply the following products in BPA free containers:

    • Crown Prince Clam Juice and Crown Prince Natural Clam Juice - Products of Holland
    • Crown Prince Natural Smoked Baby Clams in Olive Oil - Product of Thailand
    • Crown Prince Natural Kipper Snacks (both varieties) - Product of Canada
