Responsible Super Markets – Letter

Following my investigation into fishing practices and the current crisis facing the worlds oceans I have drafted a letter to send to the large super markets.  I hope you will join me in sending a message to these big wigs that we are not interested in supporting the desimation of our ocean.


Dear Sir/Madame,

I am writing to express my concerns about the selling of fish produce that are proven to be unsustainable.  As a consumer I would be happy to know that the place I choose to shop is working with me to make ecologically friendly decisions.

I would hope as a responsible business you would consider to develop and implement policies for sourcing sustainable seafood. Removing species from your shelves that are listed on national Greenpeace seafood red lists. These red lists show the key species sold in each country that have a high risk of being sourced unsustainably – from overfished stocks and by destructive fishing methods, or from poor aquaculture practices.

I hope to see the changes creeping into my local.  I shop at New World Papakura.

Yours Sincerly
