Kroger is the largest traditional grocery store chain in the U.S. and this week, will have millions of shoppers stocking up for Independence Day BBQs and picnics. But for shoppers at Kroger stores nationwide — their seafood purchases are likely linked to ocean destruction.Unfortunately, seafood at Kroger is sourced from some of the most destructive fisheries in the world — many that rely on gruesome fishing methods that indiscriminately injure and kill other marine animals, like sharks, turtles, and dolphins. These unintended victims — called bycatch — are just thrown back into the sea dead or dying. Kroger is also the worst Red List offender, selling 18 of the 22 threatened Red List species — fish that should never be sold in stores.It doesn't have to be this way. Rivals like Whole Foods and Safeway have already proven that sustainable policies that protect our oceans are not only good for marine life — they are also smart business.
Tell Kroger to reverse its path of ocean destruction! The company needs to create sustainable seafood purchasing policies, stop selling Red List seafood, and provide more alternatives to destructively fished products for customers.
