Safeway offers a range of products recognized by SeaChoice as a “Best Choice” for sustainability. Good examples are farmed scallops, mussels, clams, and oysters. These shellfish require no special feeds, have a very low impact on the environment and can help improve the water quality of their surroundings. Our continued support of these farmed shellfish is a sign of our commitment to providing seafood that can be enjoyed by
generations to come.
Eliminating Red List Species
At Safeway, we no longer sell several “red list” species that play essential roles in ocean ecosystems and that are now threatened. The list includes blue fin tuna, yellowfin tuna, all species of shark, Atlantic halibut, Chilean sea bass and orange roughy.
