Trade Monitoring

NOAA Fisheries’ National Seafood Inspection Laboratory (NSIL) plays a critical role in streamlining seafood trade in and out of the United States. Working in conjunction with other NOAA Fisheries offices and U.S. Customs and Border Protection, NSIL provides support to seafood dealers and implements programs to ensure imported seafood is caught and imported legally. Species that fall under this program include Patagonian toothfish, bluefin tuna, swordfish, and bigeye tuna.
