83% of Americans Support New Seafood Traceability Requirements

On September 27, 2016, Oceana released a poll revealing that 83 percent of Americans support new requirements focused on eliminating seafood fraud in the United States, including requiring that key information such as what type of fish it is, and how and where it was caught or farmed, follows our seafood from boat to plate. The national poll, conducted by the non-partisan polling company icitizen, surveyed 1,000 registered American voters online from September 15-19, 2016, and is being released as the Obama administration is expected to issue its final traceability rule to address seafood fraud in the United States.
