Target To Sell Only Sustainable And Traceable Seafood Within Four Years

October 13, 2011: 07:36 PM EST
The Associated Press reports that Target Corp. has decided that all of its fresh and frozen seafood must be sustainable and traceable by 2015. The company has been at the forefront of efforts to adjust their policies regarding seafood as concerns rise about overfishing and the environmental impact of some fishing methods. In the past two years, for example, Target has stopped selling Chilean sea bass and orange roughy in its stores because of concerns related to overfishing. Last year the company pulled all farmed salmon from stores, because of pressure from consumers and environmentalists concerned that salmon farms are bad for the environment.
