Welcome to the IntraFish Podcast, episode No. 11.
In this episode, Editorial Director Drew Cherry, Executive Editor John Fiorillo and Reporter Kim Tran dive into the ongoing tuna debacle.
Last week, Bumble Bee agreed to plead guilty for its role in a conspiracy to fix the prices of canned and pouched tuna sold in the United States. Since then, amended complaints were filed in the dozens of antitrust cases against the tuna firms. These new complaints revealed new details on alleged price sharing, downsizing cans, raising prices as well as a list of 56 seafood professionals on a so-called 'Conspiracy’s Players List.'
