The following announcement was published by NOAA Fisheries on October 20, 2015:
October is National Seafood Month, and NOAA Fisheries has launched our first-ever mobile-friendly website to enable our users to access the nation’s database on sustainable seafood anywhere, anytime, on any device.
FishWatch offers the same great seafood information, but now it's easier to use on the go from your phone or tablet. Using the site, consumers can:
- Make smart seafood choices with facts about what makes U.S. seafood sustainable—from the ocean or farm to your plate.
- Get information on the status of some of the nation’s most valuable marine fish harvested in U.S. federal waters as well as U.S. farmed fish that help meet our country’s growing seafood demand.
- Understand how U.S. seafood is responsibly harvested and grown under a strong monitoring, management, and enforcement regime that works to keep the marine environment healthy, fish populations thriving, and our seafood industry on the job.
FishWatch provides neutral, science-based information on the status of federally managed marine fisheries to the public.
