Alila Seminyak – Seasalt Bids Goodbye to Yellowfin & Bluefin Tuna Over Unsustainable Fishing

Since its opening, Seasalt at Alila Seminyak has been strongly committed to sourcing seafood that is wild-caught and sustainably harvested from the waters of Indonesia. In line with this commitment, Seasalt partners with Bali Sustainable Seafood, a local social enterprise that provides high-quality seafood that is sustainably fished.

Driven by the world’s appetite for tuna, overfishing in the Indian Ocean is damaging the ocean’s ability to sustain tuna populations, especially of yellowfin tuna. Recent reports state that the yellowfin tuna forms a significant portion of the annual tuna catches in the Indian Ocean, around 42 percent. Therefore, it has been recommended that tuna fishing be reduced by 20 percent to hopefully allow tuna stocks to recover in the next five years.


Through its action, Seasalt hopes to contribute to restoring a sustainable future for tuna, the world’s most favourite fish, particularly its most threatened species. Although yellowfin and bluefin tuna will no longer be on its menu, Seasalt has nevertheless prepared a sustainable replacement using skipjack, a local fish sustainably harvested directly from the waters around Indonesia.
