Learn why America’s seafood harvests are your smartest choice.
We all depend on seafood harvested responsibly from America’s fisheries.
America’s seafood harvests
are second to none.
Building a stronger America that is better able to feed ourselves and increase our exports is what we’re all about. Domestic food sources are of vital importance to America’s economy and national security.
Made in America
America imports over 90% of the seafood we consume! Only around 10% is harvested locally from America’s fisheries. That 10% is your smartest seafood choice.
Our harvests are highly regulated to ensure the health of the marine life that we harvest and the surrounding ecosystem and the safety practices of those that package, process, and distribute it.
Growing the economy
The U.S. domestic seafood industry is responsible for over a million American jobs and billions of dollars in annual GDP, and growing. Feeding Americans, and the world, is what we do — safely, responsibly, and proudly.
From sea to shining sea
America’s seafood industry spans the globe, including our 35 coastal states and territories. Our industry also supports a nationwide network of trucking, wholesale, equipment, and service businesses, and includes members of many proud native American tribes.
