Knowing where your seafood comes from is often no simple task for consumers and seafood merchants alike. A plethora of products are available at fish auction houses and markets (such as Billingsgate Market, the largest fish market in the United Kingdom), and that seafood may have had many stops as it moved from fishing boat or fish farm to our plates. Unfortunately, information about its source doesn't always travel with it. For those wanting to buy sustainably caught or produced seafood then having access to information on its source is critical in making an informed choice.
SeaWeb will host a panel discussion about traceability in the seafood industry and will have an exhibit booth at the National Restaurant Association (NRA) Show, held this year from May 22 to 25 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Ill. Find out more >>
