The largest grocery supplier in the U.S. is Wal-Mart. As a matter of fact the company is the largest retailer on earth. On Thursday Wal-Mart announced that it will only be accepting frozen salmon products that carry the Marine Stewardship Council’s sustainability label. Last year most of the major seafood processors that do business in Alaska withdrew their support for the MSC label resulting in no certification for this year’s salmon pack out of Alaska. That–coupled with Wal-Mart’s decision to only stock MSC certified–seems to indicate that frozen salmon products made with salmon from Alaska will not be available on Wal-Mart store shelves this year.
