As we wrap up Seafood Month 2019, we’re talking to Laurel Bryant, Chief of External Affairs for NOAA Fisheries. Throughout her 25-year career at NOAA, she has championed the benefits of healthy seafood and supported strong partnerships across the seafood industry.
Sustainable seafood…it’s not something that you just achieve. It requires constant work, constant monitoring. It’s an ongoing journey, particularly when you’re dealing with wild capture fisheries in a dynamic ocean and a changing environment. There are a lot of environmental benefits that come from good fisheries management and getting consumers to understand that and appreciate it and really reward our fishermen at the marketplace is an important aspect of U.S. seafood.
