In the past the seafood industry, to a large extent, avoided the exchange of data altogether because neither governments, nor consumers, required such data. This is rapidly changing however, and with the US Seafood Import Monitoring Program, chain of custody records will be required for seafood prior to import beginning January 1, 2018.
