Get Updates: Begich Takes Issue with Wal-Mart Salmon Decision

U.S. Sen. Mark Begich is taking issue with a decision by Wal-Mart to stop buying Alaska salmon products not certified as sustainable by the London-based Marine Stewardship Council.

Begich, in a letter to the president and CEO of Wal-Mart Stores Inc., asked the company reconsider making the council the “sole arbiter” of which fish Wal-Mart sells.
