UK retail giant Tesco shocked the seafood industry both in its home country and abroad with the abolition this week of its remaining fresh fish -- also called wetfish -- counters.

On Feb. 26, the company -- the largest retailer in the UK -- will close its remaining 279 stores, citing a lack of demand from consumers.

It's sparked an online debate, with most bemoaning the move. However, there is a case to be made that the move away from the fresh fish counter could be a net positive. Join Editor-in-Chief Drew Cherry and Executive Editor John Fiorillo as they discuss and debate in this week's podcast.
