Where do those fish sticks come from? Most children – and some parents, too – have no idea that somewhere in there, there is a fish who used to live in the ocean. And this one fish was more often than not caught in a way that make most people stop asking for fish if they saw how this fish came to their plates.
Greenpeace has been very active in exposing companies that pretend to fish according to the rules but break them more often than not:
“All across the country, we’re preparing for Independence Day picnics and backyard BBQs with friends and family. During trips to the supermarket to stock up, let’s make sure we’re not hurting the blue — our oceans — as we celebrate the red, white, and blue.
For shoppers at Kroger stores nationwide — their seafood purchases are likely linked to ocean destruction.
Seafood at Kroger is sourced from some of the most destructive fisheries in the world — many that rely on gruesome fishing methods that indiscriminately injure and kill other marine animals, like sharks, turtles, and dolphins.These unintended victims — called bycatch — are just thrown back into the sea dead or dying.
Kroger has said that they are committed to seafood sustainability — even going as far to put a sustainability video online — but our independent research has shown the opposite. Kroger is the worst Red List offender out of the top 26 major grocery stores nationwide, selling 18 threatened Red List seafood species. It’s inexcusable. ”
