The Mississippi Legislature this year is likely to debate a bill that would require Mississippi restaurants to notify customers of the country of origin of their seafood.

Steve Bosarge of Pascagoula, a commission member and shrimper, said the menu labeling requirement would help shrimpers expand the market for their catch.

The Mississippi Commission on Marine Resources is scheduled to consider this week a resolution for Country of Origin Labeling for all seafood products served in restaurants, according to The Mississippi Press.
