Seafood Disclosure Bill Passes in Louisiana
In Louisiana, restaurants must now disclose use of foreign shrimp and crawfish on their menus, a measure driven by some of the state’s restaurant owners and seafood industry workers.
The Louisiana legislature recently passed House Bill 335, requiring restaurants to disclose whether they serve imported shrimp or crawfish.
The bill passed unanimously in the legislature and now awaits the governor’s signature.
Once the governor signs off, the new law will take effect immediately.
