Chefs, restaurant owners and sustainable seafood leaders from across the country have added their names to an open letter urging the government take action to stop seafood fraud. By improving boat-to-plate traceability, the government can help ensure that all fish sold in Canada is honestly labelled, legally caught and fully traceable.
“Seafood fraud affects our oceans, our wallets and our health, as well as the honest fishers and businesses who play by the rules,” said Josh Laughren, Executive Director of Oceana Canada. “Our government has a responsibility to Canadians to ensure that the path from a boat to our plate is fully traceable. This will help consumers know more about what they’re really eating and help the government stop seafood fraud.”
Oceana Canada is committed to protecting seafood consumers, the seafood industry and our oceans from the adverse impacts of seafood fraud.
