Studies have found that one third of seafood tested in the United States is mislabeled.
This bait and switch can rip off consumers by swapping a lower value fish for a more expensive option, can give illegally caught fish a new legal identity or even mask health concerns. Seafood fraud and illegal fishing undercut honest fishermen, threaten consumer health, and harm the oceans.
The Protecting Honest Fishermen Act requires boat to plate traceability, ensuring that all seafood is safe, legally caught and honestly labeled, while providing you with information about what fish it is and where and how the fish was caught or farmed.
Tell your members of Congress to support the Protecting Honest Fishermen Act of 2017 to protect honest fishermen, seafood businesses, consumers and our oceans.
