Greenpeace activists dressed as sharks hold banners over a pile of Clover Leaf tuna products that were hauled into Clover Leaf Seafoods' Canadian headquarters by fellow activists. Greenpeace Oceans Campaigner Sarah King also delivered a platter of simulated dead marine life (consisting of a shark fin, sea-turtle head and albatross leg) to Clover Leaf Seafood's Canadian Vice President of Marketing, Lorna Buchanan, at Clover Leaf's Canadian headquarters, in Markham, Ontario, Canada. Clover Leaf is a major offender in canning unsustainably caught tuna. The company sources from fisheries that take a huge toll on other marine species such as sea turtles, sharks and even seabirds that are caught incidentally, known as bycatch. With the largest canned tuna market share in Canada, Clover Leaf has a crucial role in greening canned seafood in supermarkets nation wide.
