Bristol Bay and Wal-Mart

Interesting developments on the Bristol Bay front where Wal-Mart has announced it intends to stock wild Bristol Bay salmon on its shelves.

Wal-Mart has made a commitment that by 2011 all of its wild-caught fresh and frozen fish for the North American market will be sourced from fisheries that meet the Marine Stewardship Council environmental standard for sustainable and well-managed fisheries.

With commercial interests lining up on both sides of the issue it will be interesting to see the impact on the Pebble Mine development decision making process.

… and does this mean I have to shop at Wal-Mart now?
