Nugget Markets recognized as sustainable seafood retailer

April 15, 2011 |

Local grocery store chain Nugget Markets, family-owned and operated since 1926, has been recognized by conservation organization Greenpeace USA’s “Carting Away the Oceans” campaign as one of the most sustainable seafood retailers in the nation, with a score of 8.3.

Greenpeace’s seafood sustainability scorecard evaluates retailers on a number of different sustainable seafood practices, such as sustainable seafood policy, support of sustainability initiatives, labeling and promotion of sustainable seafood and number of red list seafoods, a news release said.

“We’ve always been devoted to our guests, our communities, and the environment,” said Angel Nolasco, director of meat operations at Nugget Market Inc., in the news release. “We’re proud of our Greenpeace ranking, and we’re here to provide our guests with the necessary information to make seafood choices that are in alignment with their values and needs.”

Since 2006, Nugget Markets has been committed to an ongoing partnership with FishWise, a sustainable seafood nonprofit organization in collaboration with the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch program. FishWise provides color-coded rankings for each type of fish, with each colored signage reflecting the respective sustainability color/ranking, country of origin and wild or farmed identification.

Green labels indentify species from well-managed sources that are farmed/wild caught in environmentally friendly ways. Yellow labels signify species from farms/fisheries with positive attributes, but with environmental concerns. Red labels identify species that are wild caught/farmed in ways that can cause harm to the environment.

Greenpeace evaluates companies based on sustainable seafood policies, support for sustainability initiatives, labeling and promotion of sustainable seafood, and number of red-list seafood items.

In addition to partnering with FishWise, Nugget Markets signed and supports the following policy initiatives to foster healthy and sustainable seafood practices: bycatch caps and use of cleaner gears, quotas recommended by scientists, enforcement and monitoring of fishing vessels, creation of marine reserves, and efforts to include strong environmental criteria in aquaculture legislation.

Nugget Markets has nine Northern California stores including two in Davis.
