Seafood, See Jobs

Commercial fisheries are predicting harmful effects of administration's tariffs

Like the farming industry, commercial fishing is raising concerns about what it predicts will be the harmful effects of tariffs, using the voices of people actually working in the field.

Last week, the National Fisheries Institute (NFI) relaunched its website to tell stories of workers, particularly in the New England region, whose livelihood could be harmed by the Trump administration’s trade war with China and other countries. The campaign features a new slogan—“Seafood, See Jobs”—as well as expanded content offerings.
