Germany’s largest supermarket chain, Edeka, today announced it will work toward selling only fish from sustainable sources by 2011.

Edeka has partnered with the World Wildlife Fund to ensure it sources only from Marine Stewardship Council-certified fisheries and sustainable fish farms. The chain’s first step will be to remove species on the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s red list of threatened species, which includes bluefin and bigeye tuna.

Edeka has about 10,000 stores in Germany and holds about one-quarter of the German food retail market.
