Carrefour to suspend wild bass sales during its breeding period

Carrefour to suspend wild bass sales during its breeding period

 

Boulogne-Billancourt, France, 2018-Feb-08 — /EPR Retail News/ — Carrefour’s aim is to become the leader of the food transition. Increasing our selection of sustainable fishing products is in line with this aim. Carrefour has set itself the target of selling the widest range of responsibly-caught fish on the market. And it would like half of all fish purchased at Carrefour to be responsibly sourced by 2020.

We have been warned about the risks that the wild bass is currently facing. In February and March, it is the breeding period for the wild bass. Catching it during this period disrupts its natural cycle and prevents stocks from being replenished.

To ensure that we are able to sell this product to our customers in the long term, we will suspend wild bass sales in February and March.
During these months, customers will be able to purchase farm-reared bass, including one organic variety.

This initiative is fully in line with Carrefour’s commitment to preserving the planet’s biodiversity and its marine resources, alongside withdrawing certain species under threat from sale, creating a range of certified fish and fish that have been responsibly reared, supporting local sustainable fishing and tackling illegal fishing.
