Greenseas goes FAD-free following public outcry27th Apr 2017 — Greenseas has announced it has ended its arrangement with suppliers that used Fish Aggregating Devices, or FADs, after Greenpeace's 2017 Canned Tuna Guide found they were the worst performing of all the major brands on the Australian market.
"These devices are indiscriminate killers of sea life long abandoned by all the other major brands and we welcome Greenseas' immediate commitment to stop using them," Greenpeace campaigner Andrew Kelly said.
Following the release of the Greenpeace 2017 Canned Tuna Guide, a public backlash saw more than 18,000 people email Woolworths urging them to drop the Greenseas brand from their shelves.
The supermarket giant then scheduled an emergency meeting with Kraft Heinz, the owner of Greenseas, to request immediate action on these customer concerns. [source]
