    @bondonk: Motivation is getting tuna with Bishul Yisrael at a reasonable price. – Gershon Gold Jul 3 '15 at 15:43
  • Isn't all tuna with a Hekhsher Bishul Yisrael? Why would anyone put a Hekhsher on something not Kosher? – Double AA May 3 '16 at 16:14
  • @DoubleAA: To the best of my knowledge OU certified tuna is not Bishul Yisrael. See here this article from COR Canada – Gershon Gold May 3 '16 at 16:33

    @DoubleAA: Yes. They hold there is no need for Bishul Yisrael on tuna. – Gershon Gold May 3 '16 at 16:52

    I think for Pesach BumbleBee does a premium production in goldish-colored cans that is OU Kosher for Passover, and Bishul Yisrael as well. They're available a few weeks before Passover. – Shalom Dec 30 '10 at 23:35

If you are looking for Bishul Yisrael according to the opinion of the Rema(and thus Ashkenazim), yes there are. According to the Mechaber(and thus Sephardim), no there are not. There are a couple of brands that are imported from Israel that meet Sephardi criteria.

  • Do you know Hacham Ovadia's Teshuva about eating at restaurants? If so, do you think it applies to tuna? – Hacham Gabriel Mar 18 '13 at 4:23
  • Please provide sources (or sauces!) – bondonk Jun 28 '15 at 20:11

  • That's not true at all in any way whatsoever in the slightest – user24000 Dec 22 '20 at 8:00
  • Sorry to refer to this old thread. Your comment intrigued me during a recent interest in this topic for a similar type of food product. Are you suggesting that Dagim with CRC certification is not BY? Source? – Reuven D. Feb 17 at 23:05

Some brands of organic/sustainable Tuna that can be found in the health food section of a grocery store will have "BY" stamped on the top of the can. This means it is from a special Bishul Yisroel run at the factory.
