Our current weak seafood labelling laws make it challenging to choose ethical and sustainable seafood.
The Australian government has just released their proposed changes to Country of Origin Labelling for seafood in hospitality, and are looking for input.
The proposed changes are inadequate and do not provide enough information.
In order for Aussies to have confidence in what they are eating, labelling of all seafood must describe:
- The species of seafood on offer,
- Where and how it was caught, and
- Who caught it.
This proposal is our first opportunity to step in and demand stronger labelling laws to protect our oceans.
Join us in demanding greater transparency for our seafood, and a level playing field for our seafood industry.
