October is National Seafood Month

Rob Ruiz, a chef and restaurant owner in San Diego, California, talks sustainability in this National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Fisheries video recognizing October as National Seafood Month 2019.

Throughout the month, NOAA Fisheries will publish seafood stories, including science features, culinary Q&As, seafood videos and a podcast. Folks are also welcome to join in #SeafoodMonth on FacebookInstagram and Twitter.

National Seafood Month highlights sustainable fisheries and smart seafood choices as well as illustrates U.S. fisheries successes, like the recently rebuilt southern population of black sea bass, the 34th fish stock to be rebuilt in the U.S. since 2000, according to NOAA. Visit FishWatch for up-to-date information on the science, status and management of U.S. seafood.

“NOAA Fisheries works to advance and export sustainable management practices internationally, establish and maintain a level the playing field for our fishermen and fish farmers, and maintain confidence in U.S. seafood products and access to the global marketplace,” according to the website. “The recipe for sustainable seafood includes strong science, responsive management, and enforced compliance.”
