The Effort to Create a National Seafood Council
Fish, it's what's for dinner. New Seafood Council Proposed
Many of us remember actor Sam Elliott's velvety voice proclaiming, "beef, it's what's for dinner" and animated California raisins crooning "I heard it through the grapevine" scattered across commercial TV breaks for decades. Those industry-led advertising campaigns were hokey, but they did impact consumer behavior and now there is an effort to revive a little known law from the 1980's to do the same thing for U.S. produced seafood. In this episode, we talk with two of the authors of a report and recommendation to the U.S Secretary of Commerce to create a National Seafood Council. The 'Sturgeon General' may get an encore after all.
