Richard Levine—Alamy

There are many fishy (gosh, I'm so sorry) practices in the tuna industry, and one of them has finally being brought to task.

A few years ago, a consumer noticed that a can of Starkist was under-filled. Realizing the can was "slightly-empty" and decidedly not "almost full," the customer launched a class action lawsuit. Two-and-a-half years later, it was agreed that Starkist had to pay up. If you've been a Starkist customer, you now have less than 24 hours to register for a piece of the settlement before the lawsuit's deadline arrives.

If you purchased Starkist varieties Chunk Lite, Solid White, in either oil or water, from Feb. 19, 2009 through Oct. 31, 2014, you're entitled to a $25 check or $50 worth of tuna, if you're ready to trust again. All claims from customers must be received by Nov. 20, 2015, at the latest.

You don't need the receipt to take part. Just go to Hurry!
