Grocery Stores and Businesses Boycotting Canadian Seafood

These companies are supporting The HSUS's Protect Seals campaign by boycotting Canadian seafood

The Humane Society of the United States

After hearing about the horrific treatment of seals during Canada's annual seal hunt, more than 5,500 grocery stores, restaurants, and other companies have joined the Protect Seals campaign.

Some of the many grocery stores and other companies that are participating in the ProtectSeals boycott of Canadian seafood include Whole Foods Markets, Trader Joe's, Harris Teeter, WinCo Foods, BI-LO Supermarkets, Lowe's Food Stores, and Bon Appétit Management Company.

In addition, several thousand restaurants have signed onto the boycott, including Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville Cafes; Ted Turner's steakhouse chain, Ted's Montana Grill; Legal Sea Foods; and Oceanaire Seafood Room. You can check out our restaurant locator here.

We welcome all of their efforts and yours, too. Together we will bring an end to the seal hunt.

These companies are among the thousands to have shifted some or all of their seafood purchasing away from Canada until Canada ends its seal hunt. Some are boycotting snow crabs from Canada; others are boycotting seafood from the provinces involved in the hunt; and others are boycotting all seafood from Canada.

Grocery stores  l  Seafood suppliers  l  Other companies

If you don't see your favorite grocery store on this page, please ask them to join the boycott.  If one of the participating companies is in your town, print out a thank you card to drop off and show your support!

If you are a business owner, sign on to become part of the boycott or contact Eileen Densel, Protect Seals Coordinator, at edensel@humanesociety.org or 301-248-3083. Watch video footage from the hunt.
