Whole Foods

Whole Foods has decided to please all of the Green/Earthy/Vegetarians etc, etc, people and ban  seafood that is red-rated fish. I don't care what they ban because I don't shop for Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Salmon and Flounders at Whole Foods because I thought they were too expensive but looking at the state of our economy today, their decision will have a substantial effect on the New England ports. Whole Foods is a great store but this decision I think is absurb.

Caviar, Sturgeon (imported wild)
