Knowing your fish’s country of origin can have a substantial impact on your health. 

The desire for more information has prompted meat suppliers to provide a host of labels and qualifiers meant to give consumers a more accurate answer to these questions. Unfortunately, parsing out the exact meaning of these labels can require some serious work, as they can be at best just plain confusing, and at worst deliberately misleading. 

Fortunately, when it comes to buying fish there’s a simple way to cut through the clutter and make sure you’re buying safe, healthy and fresh products.

Look for fish that was raised in the USA.

Freshness is measured in the distance the meat travels to get to you, and the time it takes to travel that distance.

Imported fish are generally less regulated.

Buying local fish is good for our economy and provides local jobs
