A woman hands a signed postcard in support of sustainable fishing to be sent to Trader Joe's to a Greenpeace activist in San Francisco, California, July 2, 2009. Dressed in Hawaiian shirts similar to those worn by Trader Joe?s employees, the Greenpeace activists visited local stores in San Francisco accompanied by two oversized Orange Roughy. Orange Roughy are one of 22 ?red-listed? or endangered species listed by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). Scientific studies indicate that the species has a lifespan of up to 149 years. Once on site, activists deployed a voting booth and engaged customers to ?vote for sustainable seafood? before presenting Trader Joe?s with a citation.
