Walmart sets goal of 100% sustainable fish sales

Walmart’s experiments with eco-buildings reek of greenwashing, since its big box format is inextricably tied to sprawl and its economic model tied to global shipment.
But this announcement that Walmart pledges to source all of its fish from fisheries that meet Marine Stewardship Council’s sustainable criteria sounds real, and sounds like it would make a real difference in avoiding the destruction of wild fish.
I’m not going to shop there because of their treatment of humans, but I’m really happy to hear that a retailer with enough market share to make a difference is planning to avoid overfishing. The march toward fishstock depletion is one of the several scarier threats to human civilization.
