Seafood Imported From Canada, South America, and Europe Sold in the U.S. (California, USA)


Despite its strict requirements for import, the U.S. consumes a large source of foreign fishery products yearly. Seafood sold in this market not only include “products of the U.S.,” but also come from countries such as Canada, Argentina, Ecuador, Chile, Norway and Scotland. Wonder how seafood products that you farm would look like when they are exported? Let’s take a look at fresh and frozen seafood products sold at local supermarkets in the U.S. Pictures are taken by Vietlinh at Costco Alhambra and Little Tokyo Market Place in Los Angeles area, California.
