29 Jan: Sweeney/Fisher Bill To Make Seafood ‘Jersey Fresh’ Is Now Law

TRENTON – A measure sponsored by Senator Stephen Sweeney and Assemblyman Douglas H. Fisher adding seafood products to the list of “Jersey Fresh” and “Jersey Grown” foods, promoted in the State’s national advertising campaign was signed into law today.

“By offering seafood under the ‘Jersey Fresh’ program, we are helping to boost the economy by promoting our multi-million dollar fishing industry,” said Senator Sweeney, D-Gloucester, Cumberland and Salem, who serves as Vice Chair of the Senate Environment Committee. “When people see the ‘Jersey Fresh’ name, they know that they are purchasing quality products, and by adding seafood to the list of items, we’re working to provide more variety for consumers.”
