Whole Foods will soon stop selling what's called red-rated seafood, including species that are suffering from overfishing or harmful fishing methods.

Atlantic Halibut, grey sole and skate are among the varieties that will no longer be sold as of April 22.

Whole Foods is the first national grocery store chain to stop selling red-rated seafood.

Ratings on seafood are determined by non-profit research organizations.
