A Tuesday Tuna Trade Up Part 1

What's the difference between a fish and a piano? You can't tuna fish! Hehe!! Okay, okay, back to business.
For the next four weeks we are putting on our goggles and heading below sea level to take a closer look at tuna fish. Each week we are going to find a way to Trade Up our nutrition by using the NuVal score, a single number 1-100. The higher the score, the higher the nutrition!

Here we go, let's dive in...
