Our History

Atuna.com was founded by Henk Brus in 1998 shortly after creating his tuna trading company Atuna located in the Netherlands. It initially started as a blog where Mr. Brus would post his daily market insights on the tuna business for his worldwide clients and suppliers. His aim was to keep them informed and up-to-date with the latest developments on the tuna industry.

In 2007 Atuna organized the first European Tuna Conference (ETC), the conference has been held bi-annually in Brussels, Belgium ever since then. The ETC brings together leading raw material suppliers, fishing companies, processors, tuna brands, distributors and traders, as well as retailers and bankers to debate and discuss the challenges and opportunities within the tuna industry (Click here to find out more). Atuna is also co-organizer of the bi-annual World Tuna Conference in Bangkok, Thailand, organizer of the African Tuna Conference in Cote D’ivoire and organizer of the Americas Tuna Conference in Panama.

In 2011, Atuna entirely stopped its tuna trading activities to officially dedicate all efforts onto providing the tuna industry with the latest happenings in the tuna business and further developing its position as the world’s leading website on Tuna Industry News.

Atuna.com provided the global tuna community with online tuna business insider news free of charge for more than a decade. In order to continue meeting the demands for high quality tuna business news, the website has been recently upgraded and a variety of interesting sections have been added to allow our professional readers to enjoy full insight of the global tuna business from all perspectives. In March 2014, Atuna.com became a paid membership website.

Atuna.com continues providing tuna professionals with real, factual and vital tuna industry knowledge: daily global tuna news, historical and current tuna price trends, latest fishing, processing and trade statistics, state of the stocks, interesting interviews, market analysis tools and much more.

The ATUNA magazine was added to the Atuna portfolio in 2015. It is a printed edition published twice a year, offering more extensive in depth analysis and business stories. The ATUNA Magazine is part of the atuna.com membership benefits.
