Safe Catch, a low-mercury tuna can, was started by Sean Wittenberg and Bryan Boches in 2014. As of August 2023, Safe Catch’s net worth is $35 million, and they’re pulling in a whopping $4 million in annual revenue. 

In November 2016, they appeared on Season 08 of Shark Tank USA, seeking $600,000 for 3% equity, valuing the company at $20 million. The company’s fish has mercury levels that are ten times lower than what the FDA says is safe. Their tuna doesn’t contain any preservatives, just salt. However, the Sharks disagreed with the company’s estimated value.

As of August 2023 Safe Catch is still in business. You can purchase Safe Catch products online through their ecommerce channels such as their website and Amazon.

Safe Catch Founders

Safe Catch was founded by Bryan Boches and Sean Wittenberg in 2014. The co-founders, Bryan Boches and Sean Wittenberg were motivated by personal reasons to address the issue of mercury in tuna. Sean’s mother experienced mercury poisoning from eating too much tuna, and Bryan’s wife craved tuna during pregnancy but was concerned about the mercury in it. So, they joined forces and created a technology capable of testing every fish for mercury. Safe Catch’s founders, Bryan Boches and Sean Wittenberg, have a net worth of 35 Million USD as of 2023.
