COD FUNERAL IN HALIFAX

03/18/2010 - Greenpeace mourners, complete with coffin and hearse, form a funeral procession at a Sobeys food store in Halifax, mourning the loss of the Atlantic cod. World Atlantic cod stocks have suffered severe overexploitation, while Eastern Canadian cod stocks collapsed in the early 1990s and have not recovered. The Greenpeace supermarket campaign calls on retailers to remove Atlantic cod from sale to allow stocks to recover.
