'We Should Support Locals’: Seafood Labeling Law Takes Effect

By Tiffany Wong, WVUE-TV, Fox 8, New Orleans

NEW ORLEANS - Restaurants selling imported seafood now have to disclose where it comes from, as a new seafood labeling law took effect Sunday (Sept. 1), requiring restaurants to let customers know if their seafood is from out of the country. There weren’t visible signs posted around the French Quarter Monday, but some restaurant managers like Chad Penedo of the Court of Two Sisters, said they’re not worried about the new law, because they only buy their seafood from local vendors.
