Consumer Tips

NOAA Seafood Inspection Program has posted here a guide to the flavor and texture of fish and shellfish to help consumers select species based on these qualities.

It also offers consumers tips on storing, purchasing, and preparing seafood in its Consumer Brochure.

The NOAA Fisheries Service offers its FishWatch page as another source consumers can use to make informed decisions about the seafood they eat by providing the most accurate and up-to-date information on seafood available in the U.S. The FishWatch page is available here.
