Sainsbury’s makes a big play of being a responsible retailer. But Sainsbury’s seafood isn’t sustainable because the farmed salmon you get there are fed fish plundered from the oceans half a world away.
Last October all major UK supermarkets were caught selling farmed fish linked to the collapse of wild fish populations in Asia and Africa.
Then this year, experts at Changing Markets and Feedback investigated what the supermarkets are doing to fix the problem -- and Sainsbury’s ranked among the very worst.
There’s no excuse. Sainsbury’s can’t just look the other way while its suppliers drive fish populations and local fishing communities to the brink.
Tell Sainsbury’s to come clean and stop selling farmed seafood raised on wild caught fish.
