US plans to track seafood imports
MetadataShow full item record
The Obama administration is launching a fish tracking system that would eventually tell consumers where their fish was caught, processed and stored, in an effort to eradicate illegal fishing and seafood fraud. US Deputy Secretary of Commerce Bruce Andrews announced the initiative on Sunday, describing an action plan to stamp out imports of illegally caught fish. Ninety percent of seafood in the US is imported, and about 1 percent of seafood imports are inspected, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
