The US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) says a federal judge's injunction allowing companies to continue using a controversial shipping route and allowing some 26 million pounds of seafood to enter the US was "overbroad."

On Monday, US Customs filed a motion claiming Alaska Judge Sharon Gleason erred in her decision to allow American Seafoods subsidiaries and other shippers to use the so-called Bayside Program, saying that it "threatens to impair [the US government's] ability to ever collect penalties" for alleged Jones Act violations.
