For Commercial Fishermen: Import Monitoring Survey

March 23, 2023



The U.S. monitors at-risk imports to keep illegal seafood off the market.

How does this impact
commercial fishermen?

This anonymous survey asks U.S. commercial fishermen what they think about import monitoring on seafood products, specifically the Seafood Import Monitoring Program (SIMP), and how it affects their businesses. Are programs to prevent illegal imports working for America’s fishermen?

Currently, SIMP monitors 13 seafood groups that are imported into the United States. Now that the program has a few years under its belt, NOAA is considering expanding the species the program monitors, and wants feedback from seafood stakeholders.

Responses are anonymous and combined for a general report on stakeholder perspectives. Leave your name and email, and we’ll update you on what we learn!
