Where does your seafood come from? You may be thinking about your favorite restaurant or your local grocery store. But the fact is, some seafood takes a circuitous route to get from the sea to your plate, and along the way can get a little, well, lost.

Here today to talk about seafood fraud and the steps currently being evaluated to take the guesswork out of the seafood we eat is Tj Tate, director of sustainable seafood at the National Aquarium.

As chief executive officer, John Racanelli leads a team of 600 full and part-time employees and 1,000 volunteers in pursuing the National Aquarium’s mission to inspire conservation of the world’s aquatic treasures. More than 1.5 million people annually visit the Aquarium’s venue in Baltimore, Maryland, while millions more are touched by the Aquarium’s education programs, outreach activities, social media campaigns and conservation initiatives.
