We are aware that the big brands, John West and Princes, score badly in the new Greenpeace league table for sustainable tuna but the next worst brand is Lidl's Nixe brand.  Nearly 80% of its tuna is caught using destructive Fish Aggregating Devices (FADs).  These devices attract a wide range of marine life and then huge purse seine nets scoop all the species up including sharks, turtles and rays.  As it is the tuna that they want, the rest are thrown back into the sea - often dead or dying.  This practice needs to stop!

So we are targetting the Lidl store in Southmead to inform shoppers about the above practice in the hope that they will seek out more ethically sourced tinned tuna.  We will be there (weather permitting) from 11am to 1pm on Sunday  25th October.  If you would like to lend a hand then get in touch with Richard Baxter via Greenwire or email (richard.baxter200@virgin.net).
