Working to End Seafood Fraud

It isn’t just environmental advocates who want to see seafood fraud and unsustainable fishing practices come to an end. Late in 2013, more than 450 chefs, restaurant owners and culinary leaders, representing nearly all 50 states, came together with Oceana to call on Congress to pass the Safety and Fraud Enforcement for Seafood (SAFE Seafood) Act.

The National Aquarium is supporting the “Maryland Seafood Authenticity and Enforcement Act,” which would ensure that seafood sold in the state is labeled with the correct species name and location of harvest, giving consumers the tools they need to make the right decisions.
