4 places you should not be buying seafood.

Know that where you buy your food from has important and far reaching ramifications. Last January Casson Trenor wrote a very informative article about protecting our fisheries and ocean health through sustainable seafood. 

If you are trying to reduce your meat intake, starting with this Meatless Monday (!) and are buying fish,  it is important that you understand that if we spend our dollars at seafood merchants that are pursuing business models which take environmental issues into account, we offer these merchants financial incentive to continue along this path ~ encouraging other operators to change their ways.  Ideally we support these merchants, but in reality most people have no idea what is going on behind the scenes...

Casson Trenor offers a 'quick-and-dirty' list of four seafood retailers that have adopted particularly reprehensible practices in their quest for fish-driven profit ~

The 4 biggest offenders are: Costco, Legal Seafood (the New England seafood market and restaurant chain), Nobu (sushi empire sells a 'tremendous amount of' endagered Blue Fish Tuna) and H.E.B. (mainly if you live in Texas and northern Mexico.) 

In the above noted article, Casson does a good job of explaining exactly why and how these offenders need to make a change in their  buying practices.

These companies all have tremendous power to influence important change in the seafood industry.  However, they continue to sell 'blacklisted fish' like Atlantic Cod, Haddock, Tiger Shrimp and the endangered Blue Fish Tuna or have repeatedly shown a blatant and total disregard for sustainable fishing practices. The point is, if we continue to buy our seafood from these businesses we, the consumers, say to them that we don't particularly care about the ramifications of our seafood choices.

Americans spent over $75 billion on seafood purchases in 2009. Many other retailers are beginning to take steps toward sustainability by developing rigorous sourcing policies or partnering with environmental watchdogs like the Monterey Bay Aquarium or FishWise, find out who is taking these important steps near you and support them please!
