SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Target Corp said on Tuesday that it is no longer selling fresh, frozen or smoke farm-raised salmon in its stores nationwide.
The No. 2 U.S. discount retailer said that all salmon sold under its own brands will now be wild-caught Alaskan salmon. Sushi that includes farm-raised salmon will be changed over to wild-caught salmon by the end of the year, it said.
Target said it made the switch “to ensure that its salmon offerings are sourced in a sustainable way that helps to preserve abundance, species health and doesn’t harm local habitats.”
