Almost 50,000 Australians have urged the government to label the seafood they buy or eat so they know what part of the world it comes from.

Greens senator Peter Whish-Wilson on Thursday tabled a 46,000-signature petition to the Senate calling for country-of-origin labelling for all seafood sold in Australia.

"This is a very popular campaign," he told the parliament, adding that Australians should know what environment their seafood was grown in.
