US INTERNATIONAL TRADE COMMISSION TO INVESTIGATE ILLEGAL SEAFOOD IMPORTS

On 3 February, American Shipper reported that, in response to a recent request from the House of Representatives Ways and Means Committee, the ITC will investigate the integrity of the US seafood import supply chain, the extent illegal seafood products are imported into the country and the impact this has on domestic fishermen.  It is reported that up to 90% of the seafood consumed in the US today is imported and about 31%, or $23 billion a year, of those fish products are considered illegally caught.
