Certified Sustainable Whiting Fish

In 2006, Walmart and Sam’s Club become one of the first retailers to establish a sustainable fish policy when we committed to purchase all wild-caught fresh and frozen fish for the U.S. from Marine Stewardship Council (MSC)-certified fisheries by 2011 and to work with the Aquaculture Certification Council (ACC) to certify all foreign shrimp suppliers adhere to Best Aquaculture Practice standards.

 

We have now broadened this policy to include all seafood, including crab and lobster, among other seafood categories. This commitment also expands to include both wild-caught and farmed seafood, and allows for other certifications that meet or exceed MSC standards.
