Increased attention to the safety of domestic and international seafood has created an urgent need for certification programs and standards for domestic and international seafood products so that consumers will have reliable information to guide their buying decisions. Educating consumers about the importance of restoring and protecting healthy ecosystems and managing areas to ensure recreational and commercial fisheries along the shore can survive allows residents to make informed decisions. Creating educational materials related to seafood safety, quality and security, and making them available to consumers is a first step in guiding the public to make safe seafood choices.
