Help #StopSeafoodFraud in Canada. Add your name to our petition calling on the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) to take the lead on implementing full boat-to-plate traceability for all seafood sold in Canada, working alongside all government departments responsible for the integrity of Canada’s seafood supply chain.
Oceana Canada tested more than 470 seafood samples in six cities across Canada from 2017-2019 and found alarming rates of fraud: 47 per cent of the samples were mislabelled.
Seafood fraud includes any dishonest activity that misrepresents the product being sold, including the practice of substituting one type of fish for another. It threatens public health and safety, harms the ocean and cheats consumers and honest seafood businesses. It can even mask global human rights abuses by creating a market for illegally caught fish.
All fish sold in Canada should be legally caught, honestly labelled and fully traceable.
