No, Tuna are too big for dolphins to eat, indeed Dolphins and Tuna frequently share the same prey, the dolphins coral bait fish into a bait ball which is then preyed upon by a number of large marine predators.

Whales and tuna fishermen are the predators for dolphins. The dolphins follow schools of tuna so the large tuna boats look for tuna by looking for dolphins.

Many tuna companies say they don't do this anymore, but that isn't necessarily true. You can see video on this if you want to see what happen to the dolphins.

What are some other reasons humans kill dolphins?

Many dolphins are killed in the process of tuna catching. Yellow Fin Tuna follow dolphins and the companies that catch tuna watch for the dolphins because they know that tuna is in the area. They spread miles of huge nets out to catch the tuna in, but they also get dolphins in the net. Because the dolphins are mammals they often drown in the nets, some jump over the nets, and others are pulled into the tuna boats. The tuna companies also set off bombs in the water that confuse the dolphins and this drives them into the nets as well. Today, companies state that they are "dolphin free" on their cans, but the dolphin still die.
