Consumers Appear Indifferent to Country-of-Origin Labeling for Shrimp – Amber Waves June 2012

Here’s an interesting article we found about consumers and shrimp labeling.  It may seem, according to this article, that people are more conscious of price than origin these days.  How does this affect Gulf Coast Shrimpers? 

We at Gulf Coast Foodways are quite picky about food, especially seafood.  Where it comes from does matter to us and our family and will work the food budget to include local seafood when the price is higher.  It is difficult to find local or USA seafood at many of our grocery stores but we go out of our way to purchase from locals when we know the source is local, too.
