Lobster trap lines are entangling endangered North Atlantic Right whales, causing serious injury and even death. With just 340 Right whales left on the planet, we can’t afford to lose even one more.
As one of the world’s largest purchasers of seafood, Red Lobster sets the standard on sustainable, responsibly sourced seafood for all its suppliers — and it can steer the industry in a safer direction.
Red Lobster has a sustainability policy in place, but it doesn’t yet address the conflict between lobstering and the Right whale. I urge Red Lobster to commit to purchasing lobster caught with ropeless gear for 50% of its lobster by the end of 2025 and 100% by 2030.
