Americans Want to Know Where Their Seafood Comes From

Most Americans want to know where their seafood comes from, and whether it was caught legally.    Morning Consult found 72% of consumers want to be able to trace the seafood they’re buying.  The Walton Family Foundation says roughly 40% of the seafood we eat is caught illegally.   Spokeswoman Teresa Ish says we should care for a couple of reasons.  One: helping the ocean, helps the planet, and Two: we eat what they eat, and if there are too many toxic chemicals in our fish it threatens our health.
