Join Consumers Demanding Wild-caught Salmon: A growing number of consumers are demanding that retailers stock only wild-caught salmon, until salmon farms adopt closed, contained farming systems that don’t harm the environment, coastal communities and wild fish. You can help! Send the letter below to the stores that still sell farmed Atlantic salmon, telling them you’re not going to buy it.
Farmed Atlantic salmon is sold by: Costco – Fresh & Easy Neighbourhood Market (Tesco) — Kroger (Fred Meyer, Ralphs, Smith Food&Drug, Quality Food Centers) – Safeway – Supervalu (Acme, Albertsons, Bigg’s, Cub Foods, Farm Fresh, Jewel-Osco, Lucky, Save-A-Lot, Shaw’s, Shop ‘n Save, Shopper’s Food & Pharmacy) – Trader Joe’s
Target, the second largest discount store in the United States, has eliminated farmed salmon from its fresh, frozen, and smoked seafood offerings in all 1,744 stores in 49 states. When Target made the announcement in early 2010, their shares went up by 4% within hours!
