In boost to Md. seafood industry, feds add 22,000 more H-2B visas

April 21, 2021

In a potential boost to Maryland’s seafood industry, the Department of Homeland Security has announced it’s making an additional 22,000 H-2B visas available to non-immigrant, temporary workers. The visas allow workers from outside the U.S. to enter the country and carry out work in industries that have seasonal jobs that are typically hard to fill. Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan applauded the move, saying it was “critical to keeping our Maryland seafood processors open for business.”
