    Default Traitor Joe's


    Remember the discussion last week about sustainable fish?
    http://www.montereybayaquarium.org/c..._regional.aspx

    I got the following message in my email today -

    This may be old news for some of you, but important to know. You can
    send a singing fish telegram to Trader Joe's asking them to buy
    sustainable fish.

    Singing Fish Telegram

    I love cooking with wine.
    Sometimes I even put it in the food.

    I think I'll send TJ's an e-mail asking them to ignore
    those other e-mails. Those PETA people don't buy fish,
    anyhow. And I'll thank them for providiong such nice
    tubot and orange roughy.

    Greenpeace is not the same as PETA, though I personally think they
    both cross the line into vigilantism. Still, I avoid orange roughy
    because it is a depleted species. Strange, too, that this fish can
    live to 100 years and doesn't begin reproducing until it's 20. Your
    next fillet may be older than you!

    The wild turbot that TJ sells is good to have in the freezer for a
    fast no-brainer. The seasoning is very mild, so I sometimes add some
    form of garlic chile paste. -aem

    Funny you should mention this I happened to read this on the Trader
    Joe's web site just the other day. Thought you might be interested.

    .. A Message to Our Customers About Seafood Sustainability
    We’ve received inquiries about the recent report and information that
    Greenpeace has been disseminating. Some of you have commented that is
    it seems so… well, “unbelievable.” That’s because much of it is not
    credible. We do not partner with outside organizations, nor do we
    participate in any surveys. As a result, information gets gleaned from
    sources outside of Trader Joes, and this can lead to inaccurate
    reporting, which can lead to confusion. That’s why we wanted to take a
    moment to clear up a few things.

    The Greenpeace report details that Trader Joe’s sells a certain number
    of items on their “Red List.” But several of the items that they call
    out are NOT for sale in our stores. We do NOT sell Chilean Sea Bass,
    Monkfish, Ocean Quahog or Redfish in any of our stores. In fact,
    Trader Joe’s sells fewer items on that “Red List” than the #1 ranked
    grocery retailer in their report.

    We would also like to make clear that ALL of Trader Joe’s fresh and
    frozen seafood is labeled with the country of origin, and whether or
    not it has been farmed or is wild-caught. We feel strongly that it is
    important to allow our customers the opportunity to make informed
    decisions about what they buy.

    We understand the importance of sustainability and consistently strive
    to improve our efforts in this arena. We continue to work closely with
    all of our seafood suppliers to ensure that a high level of standards
    and practices are adhered to at all times. We have been working on our
    own report that we hope to publish to our customers in the near future
    to help clarify our processes.

    What you are seeing is the continuing sad degeneration of what was once
    quite some time ago a somewhat respectable organization, into another
    group of lying, fear mongering, extremists like peta, ewg and others.
