"Caught by trolling methods" is on the cans label. Maybe a law was enacted that required that labeling. If harmful methods are used then it must say so on the can? I wouldn't mind it if that was in bold lettering on the front of the can. Then all Greenpeace would have to do is run a PR campaign on what "Caught by trolling methods" entails. Then consumers could skip that brand, and that company using those methods would go out of business (?).
