URGENT: The government committed to implementing boat-to-plate traceability – but almost two years later, there’s still no plan or timeline to deliver on this commitment. Canada has an opportunity to #StopSeafoodFraud, and we need your help.
Oceana Canada conducted another round of DNA testing in spring 2021 and found that seafood fraud is still a big problem – 46 per cent of the samples we tested were mislabelled. This is just one percentage point off from the 47 per cent mislabelling rate found among 472 samples Oceana Canada tested between 2017 and 2019.
Canada’s seafood supply chain is opaque and has weak traceability standards. This facilitates a global web of illicit fishing that is harming the oceans, costing millions of dollars to be lost to the legitimate economy and seafood sector and providing opportunities to sell products caught by victims of modern slavery trapped at sea.
The government’s commitment to address these issues is a step forward, but action is needed to fulfill its promise. All fish caught or sold in Canada must be safe, legally caught and honestly labelled. Add your name to our petition today.
