Thank you for leading the way!!! This is the reason that my family consumes about 95 percent of our seafood or meat from wholefoods.

Good job! Glad you will not sell fish that are not sustainable and whose catch harms the ocean! It is not worth it to eat that kind of food. There are plenty of other choices. Nice work!

Thank you for this public service. The sustainability of ocean harvests has long been a serious problem. It is remarkable to see this activism coming from the private sector. I will feel much better about buying my fish and seafood from Whole Foods knowing careful thought has gone into the future of marine harvests. Sean McLaughlin Brooklyn, NY

Thanks. Your efforts are very admirable. But may we look at the other side? What about contaminated fish - all kinds, those with nuclear residue, those containing mercury & the numerous other threats to human health? As a group in the forefront of a number of issues, can you provide us with information about what Whole Foods is doing to limit our exposure to fish with toxic ingredients. Thank you.

If sustainability is important to Whole Foods then why not only sell lower trophic level fish which have many greater health benefits as well as having lower bioaccumulation of mercury? Instead of offering only the fish in demand, why not try to spread the demand across many more varieties of seafood?

Hey Alli! Good decision on the part of Whole Foods to take depleting fish species into consideration. I admire WF's willingness to take a stand on such matters, even in the face of inevitable criticism. Keep up the good work and great blogging!

I am so proud of Whole Food for making this decision and banning the sale of unsustainable fish. I have to travel across Cleveland Ohio to shop at WF, hopefully they will come to Westlake soon. Rosa

Kudos to WH for leading this effort--although I am still squeamish about some of the MSC rankings, it is good to see red snapper, grouper, and others permanently off the shelves! To all those people concerned about fishermen and their livelihoods, why not vow to buy American? U.S.fisheries are more carefully managed than others around the world and these are AMERICAN jobs! Put your money where your mouth is! BTW, WH, could you please start selling U.S. farm-raised shrimp? I had it for the first time recently and it was OUTSTANDING. I would buy that at least once a week, if I could get it. Thanks again, WHole Foods!

Yes I agree seafood should be better controlled, otherwise we will have nothing in the future.
