National Fisheries Institute Statement on the Selection of Gov. Gina Raimondo as Secretary of Commerce

WASHINGTON, DC – January 7, 2021 — Gov. Gina Raimondo is an innovator who understands the vital balance between resource management and the needs of the business community. We are encouraged that President-elect Biden has chosen a policy maker from a coastal state, who knows the importance of harvesting and the full seafood supply chain, for this leadership position.

We look forward to working with her to ensure the continued sustainability of America’s fisheries and the entire seafood value chain.
