Sustainable Seafood

Greenpeace released a new article in the US earlier this week. This time, they’re looking at supermarkets and fish.

This article on the Boston Times’ Green Blog suggests that U.S. supermarkets are not doing enough to protect fish.

Have a read through the comments if you want to be shocked/amused/baffled.

I had a quick trawl (boom boom) through the Greenpeace UK site to see where our supermarkets stand.  I’ve noticed a degree of improvement when it comes to labelling where the fish comes from, and how the fish has been caught, but it really depends where you’re shopping.

Interestingly, it looks like the last time UK supermarkets were examined was in 2006, with M & S coming out top.

If anyone can find a newer report (or you know when the next one is due), let me know.
