Seafood Study – Please Participate

Hello everyone,

My team of researchers and I have developed a project called, Seafood Traceability In the Pacific Northwest: An Industry’s Perspective, being conducted at Oregon State University focused on the following demographic:

Anyone involved in or who supports a seafood business/organization as an owner, employee, and/or contractor in Alaska, British Columbia, Oregon, Washington, California, or Hawaii.

If you belong to this demographic, you are invited to participate in a 15 min survey found at this link below (password: “seafood”):

Thanks again!

All the best,
