US diners are gradually re-engaging foodservice outlets for meals by ordering from home, presenting opportunities for seafood suppliers amid the coronavirus health crisis, said President of the NPD Group Supply Track Tim Fires, speaking at IntraFish's digital seafood leadership event last week.

However, to succeed, the industry will need to fix the way seafood is delivered because restaurants are often afraid to put seafood items on delivery menus, either because they don't deliver well or because there is a general perception they don't deliver well, said Fires.
