The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration will host a press briefing about its consumer Web site,, at the International Boston Seafood Show later this month.

Seafood industry experts will join NOAA Administrator Conrad Lautenbacher on Monday, Feb. 25, at 1 p.m. at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, to discuss the usefulness and value of the Web site.

Joining Lautenbacher will be Roger Berkowitz, CEO of Legal Sea Foods in Boston; Henry Lovejoy, president of EcoFish in Dover, N.H.; Boston Public Health Commissioner Dr. Barbara Ferrer; and Dr. Dariush Mozaffarian, assistant professor of medicine and epidemiology at Harvard University.

FishWatch, designed by federal fishery scientists and managers, is a consumer-focused education tool that provides information about sustainable fisheries and health concerns regarding seafood consumption. The Web site was launched last August at the Great American Seafood Cook-Off in New Orleans.
