SAFE Seafood Act to Combat Fish Fraud

You may recall the post that I made last week, regarding the prevalance of seafood fraud in the United States.

On Wednesday, US Representative Ed Markey reintroduced a previously introduced bill aimed at combatting this fraud.  According to Markey:

“Fish fraud is a national problem that needs a national solution. This bill finally tells the seafood swindlers and fish fraudsters that we will protect America’s fishermen and consumers from Massachusetts to Alaska … From tackle to table, this bill makes the entire seafood supply chain more transparent and trustworthy.”
