This initiative complements the Territory Governments move in 2008, becoming the first jurisdiction to introduce requirements for fish retailers to label all imported seafood sold for public consumption accordingly. This includes fish and chip shops, restaurants, cafes, bistros, hotels, motels and delicatessens in supermarkets. Any seafood not harvested from Australian waters is to be clearly labelled as imported. This label is to be used on menus, menu boards, brochures, flyers and any other advertising.
