Endangered species on sale

SwordfishImage via Wikipedia


Fairway Market's latest sales circular for Paramus (Jan. 29-Feb. 4) advertises fresh swordfish steaks for $8.99 a pound, a species that is both endangered and high in harmful mercury. There is no indication where these fish steaks are from, though Fairway is required to post an in-store sign with the country of origin.
