Greenpeace Taiwan held a protest outside a Mitsui Taipei Food & Beverage Enterprise Group restaurant on May 8, over what it called the company’s “reluctance to initiate talks” about serving bluefin tuna at its outlets, reports Taipei Times.
Members of Greenpeace used a hoist to hang a banner reading “serving endangered species” from the sign on Mitsui’s flagship store in Taipai’s Zhongshan District.
Citing a ranking published by Greenpeace in January, Greenpeace Taiwan ocean campaigner Hsieh Yi-hsuan said that the Japanese-style restaurant chain is one of the poorest-performing seafood chains in the nation in terms of its damage to marine ecology, ranking at the bottom along with Sushi Express, the nation’s largest conveyor-belt sushi bar chain.
