This April, Greenpeace will be releasing our fifth Supermarket Scorecard report. And thanks to the amazing outpouring of support from activists all over the country, we’ve seen major improvements throughout the entire industry since that first scorecard was released. Trader Joe’s and now Costco have both adopted new seafood policies. Target has stepped up to be a real leader in the industry and other supermarkets are constantly working to improve their position -- which is exactly what the campaign was designed to do.
However, there’s still a group of national supermarket chains that are seriously lagging behind when it comes to their seafood “policies”. These are major companies like Wal-Mart and SUPERVALU and they need a little encouragement. Help keep the momentum going by telling them to get their act together and save the oceans.

As a consumer who cares deeply about the state of the world's oceans, I'm writing to ask that your company develop a real sustainable seafood policy. Retailers need to take responsibility for their seafood operations before it's too late.
In the past three years, major supermarket chains like Trader Joe's, Target and Costco have proven that this is possible. I hope you'll follow their lead.
