The Importance of Seafood Trade

Delicious fish, found everywhere from the pristine waters of Alaska to the iconic ports of Maine, work in tandem with globally sourced seafood to feed Americans. This alliance also provides more than a million U.S. jobs. Americans produce, process, import, export, transport and serve millions of pounds of seafood right here in this country. Policies that drive up prices and operating expenses ultimately cost jobs. Meanwhile, some policies end up disadvantaging our own exports and put even more American seafood jobs at risk. Trade is essential to a healthy seafood community.
