Import-related non-tariff measure, nes

The State of Mississippi on July 1, 2013 began instituting a law signed by Governor Phil Bryant on March 19, 2013. House Bill 771/Senate Bill2513 amends the state's 'Catfish Marketing Act' to require that all fish, not merely catfish, sold in the state must bear a country-of-origin label (COOL). In order to merit a United States COOL, farm-raised fish must be hatched and spend its entire life in the United States. Wild-caught fish must be harvested in US waters or US-territorial waters. Any processed fish must meet one or the other of those qualifications, and must also be processed in the United States. Fish sold at retail or by restaurants must label country-of-origin of the fish, although if already labeled, no additional labeling is required in retail establishments. Imported fish must identify the country of origin on the menu alongside the fish item. The term 'catfish' may be applied exclusively to any species within the family Ictaluridae. (This excludes pangasius imported from Vietnam, a catfish-like fish that the domestic catfish industry insists is not catfish.)
