Southwest Louisiana US Congressman Clay Higgins is introducing legislation that would require imported seafood be held to the same safety standards as American seafood. The Imported Seafood Safety Standards Act would beef up the number of inspections conducted on foreign fish. Higgins says US protecting US seafood isn’t just a Bayou issue.
“It’s not just important for Louisiana, it’s important for our nation. American farmers, American fishermen, shrimp, crawfish. All we need is a level playing field.”
