After shopping at Alaska’s only Target over our recent Anchorage vacation, I was interested to see this article pop up. Its a pretty bold move, but lets hope that its a first of many.

MINNEAPOLIS – Target Corp., the nation’s second-largest discounter after Wal-Mart Stores Inc., said Tuesday that it pulled all farmed salmon from its stores as it looks to be more environmentally conscious.
The retailer said it will no longer carry farmed salmon in its fresh, frozen or smoked seafood sections. The move impacts national brands and the chain’s own Archer Farms and Market Pantry brands, which will now use wild-caught Alaskan salmon.
