American retail giant Target Corp has resumed selling farmed salmon after eliminating it from its offerings in 2010.

The retailer has since then sold only wild-caught Alaskan salmon. But this week, it announced that it brought back farmed salmon in its stores since last year, saying that farmed salmon could still be sustainable.

It is selling farmed salmon certified by the Aquaculture Stewardship Council. "Currently it is the only major eco-certification for farmed salmon that has been benchmarked to perform to at least a Yellow Seafood Watch equivalency and now meets our sustainable seafood policy,” it said.
