Good News: Thank you Overwaitea Food Group

I’ve got a bit of good news to share today…finally.  I received this email from Living Oceans Society:

“Dear friend,

We have some great news to share with you!  One of the SeaChoice program retail partners, Overwaitea Food Group announced yesterday they have removed all net-cage farmed salmon from their stores.

This is a major accomplishment and step – actually the first of its kind Canada. Overwaitea is THE FIRST major retailer in Canada to commit to removing net-cage farmed salmon due to its environmental impacts.

We want to thank you, as a supporter of Living Oceans, for helping make this happen. We would like you to join us in thanking Overwaitea for being a sustainable seafood corporate champion.

Next time you shop at Save On Foods, PriceSmart Foods, Overwaitea, Cooper’s or Urban Fare, please tell the store manager or seafood counter – Thank you for dropping net-cage farmed salmon!
