Dear Gregg Steinhafel,
I applaud Target’s recent decision to discontinue the sale of farmed salmon in all stores across the United States.
Acknowledgement of the impacts of net-cage salmon farming by a major retailer and the subsequent removal of this product from your stores is a huge step forward in the sustainable seafood movement.
It is this kind of corporate responsibility that consumers are increasingly expecting from the businesses they rely on, and I happily commend Target for showing such leadership.
