Inside This Issue 4 SeaFood Business March 2014 SFB Staff and Contributors n SeaFood Business Senior Editor James Wright joined the editorial staff in 2005 and has since written nearly 50 Top Stories on topics like economic fraud, bluefn tuna, protein competition, sustainability and country-of-origin labeling. He also conducts the monthly NetWorking interview, which appears on the back page of every issue. Jamie lives in South Portland, Maine. For this month's Top Story, he explored what the new federal government initiative to curtail antibiotic use in food animals could mean for the seafood industry. "The U.S. Food and Drug Administration clearly has its focus on cattle, chicken and hog production, but its mandates include farmed seafood as well," says Wright. "If veterinary drug use is a concern for your business or your customers, ask your suppliers about how your fsh is produced." n Christine Blank, who writes our monthly retail feature, What's in Store, has been covering the seafood industry for SeaFood Business and for several years, and the retail and restaurant industries for more than 15 years. She resides in Lake Mary, Fla., where she loves to walk, bike and eat seafood — especially lobster and snow crab. n Online Editor Sean Murphy's writing and editing career spans nearly 15 years in a variety of markets, from small-town newspapers to big-city dailies to business press.
