Whole Foods Market (WFM +0.6%) says it will no longer stock "red-rated" species of fish that are believed to be over-fished or are caught through methods that can damage the marine environment. Among the seafood disappearing from WFM shelves will be octopus, gray sole, skate, Atlantic halibut and Atlantic cod caught by trawls.

    One of the reasons I like Whole Foods is the consistency of its
    reasonable policies. The customers at Whole Foods are seldom
    environmentalist fanatics. But the moderate sensible policies
    of WFM management give confidence to its customers that
    if Mackey is responsible in protecting the aquatic species
    he probably will be responsible in what he delivers to his

    Thomptex, for all I know you are Mackey, stop hiding with this
    Crazy name, come clean.


    The whole foods store in Miami has a fish department and it smells bad. The fish just stinks, somebody should let them know. Their fish department in Miami beach is awful.
    With this green initiative maybe it will smell less, great consolation.

    Many shoppers, including myself, want to do the right thing when possible. I very much appreciate Whole Foods doing the work to determine and keep abreast of the least environmentally damaging marine species to purchase. It's this attitude that makes me spend a bit extra at Whole Foods rather than the Safeway closer to me.
