Canadians deserve to know where their seafood comes from
Wouldn't it be nice to know where your seafood came from? Or how your fish was caught or farmed? Unfortunately, this information is largely unavailable in Canada. Worse, recent studies show that a quarter of all seafood is actually mislabeled. You may think you're buying eco-friendly, but actually you're eating an endangered species. Mislabeling makes it really difficult to stop illegal fishing practices.
All kinds of food from oatmeal to orange juice are required by law to show nutritional and ingredient labels. Why not our seafood so Canadians can make ocean-friendly choices?
Send an email to Prime Minister Harper asking that Canada create national seafood labelling requirements. The Honourable Gerry Ritz, Minister of Agriculture and Agrifood Canada, will be cc'd.
