As we celebrate National Seafood Month, we take a look at the state of the U.S. seafood industry and its opportunities for expansion—as evidenced by Americans' growing demand for healthy local seafood. We also discuss challenges facing the industry, such as climate change and supply chains disrupted by the pandemic.

In this episode, we speak with NOAA Fisheries Assistant Administrator (and avid seafood lover) Janet Coit about working waterfronts, aquaculture, the science behind sustainable fisheries, and building a stronger U.S. seafood sector.
