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