Greenpeace releases seafood report card; Target now best for sustainability

From Green Right Now Reports

Greenpeace released its fourth seafood “sustainability scorecard” today, which showed that the supermarket chain Target has moved up from fourth place to receive the top ranking.

Wegmans, last year’s winner for best seafood sustainability practices, inched down to second place. Whole Foods Markets remained at third place.

Safeway and Ahold USA (Stop and Shop and Giant stores) rounded out the top five stores in the rankings, which rate the stores based on how well they are monitoring the seafood they sell to keep threatened and over-fished species off the market.
