Clip File: Costco Adopts Sustainable Seafood Policy

50% of the seafood consumed by Americans comes from supermarkets and other vendors, accounting for 16 billion in annual sales of fish and other seafood products (shellfish, dried seaweed, fish sauces, etc.). Michael Ricciardi reports on Planetsave that, according to the August edition of the Good Funds Wealth Management newsletter, Costco will now cease the sale of seven species of fish currently at risk of collapsing from over-fishing: Atlantic cod, Atlantic halibut, Chilean sea bass, orange roughy, shark, swordfish, and bluefin tuna. Additionally, Costco has begun working with suppliers of farmed salmon to insure compliance with the Salmon Aquaculture Dialogue and will partner with the World Wildlife Fund to monitor Thailand’s compliance with the Shrimp Aquaculture Dialogue (for more info on these aquaculture dialogues, visit here).
