Survey finds something fishy about seafood marketing

A new survey found that more than half of Americans think the seafood industry is more or less transparent about who uses and abuses seafood.

A Gallup survey of 500 Americans with a stake in the seafood industry found that 58 percent of respondents believe that, by default, seafood is sold as pure and transparent, although a sm영주출장안마all minority of respondents believe there may be people who are unaware of the practices of others.

In an email to WTOP, E.J. Schulte, a professor of public health and food systems at Penn State Hershey and adjunct director of the Penn State Center for Food and Agriculture Policy, said the survey’s results show that people in the seafood industry are concerned and angry with the companies and companies seem to have little ability to control the practices of suppliers and employees.

“They’re really concerned about the industry’s ability to have a sense of integrity or to have transparency and information going into it. That creates a very negative environment, because those things give people the hope that this industry, this industry is going to be held to a higher standard.”

The results reflect the number of Americans who either know someone in the seafood industry or who’ve dealt with a seafood-using family member.

Schulte said even those who don’t know anything about seafood, the poll suggests that people who have had issues with seafood products feel the industry can’t afford to give them what they want without jeopardizing a very successful business, as opposed to a company that relies on raw materials and the resources of people who work at a low level.

The survey was con넷마블 포커ducted March 12-14, 2017, by Gallup International to be released June 30 and July 10. The poll is based on online interviews with 836 adults, ages 18 and older, from around the country who have heard about or interacted with seafood products and/or had experience with seafood.
