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.
