How fishermen market their catch: a national survey

Now open until July 16, 2023, a survey on national seafood marketing practices funded by NOAA Fisheries, aims to fill a gap in our understanding of the domestic seafood market in the U.S.

A national survey on direct marketing practices among U.S. seafood harvesters, developed by the University of Maine, Agricultural Marketing Services of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and National Marine Fisheries Service, was born from a simple question: “How do fishermen market their catch?” National Fisherman first mentioned the survey project, which is  funded by NOAA Fisheries’ Office of Sustainable Fisheries and the USDA, in July 2022.
