Seafood Labeling

(Webinar length:  1h 9m)


Americans are encouraged to eat more fish while news reports about fraudulent labels are at an all-time high. Seafood has many valuable health properties yet consumers tend to feel less confident about fish compared to purchasing and preparing other center-of-the-plate foods. The label is a key means to inform, enlighten and communicate what’s good about fin- and shellfish harvested from oceans, rivers and lakes. 

Join us for an insightful webinar to explore how representing fish can influence consumer choice and perception; current trends and attitudes towards various types of fish and seafood; existing labeling regulations, policies and resources; and marketplace action and activity from applicable government agency, industry trade and consumer advocacy groups regarding the identity marketing, promotion and advertising of seafood.
