Though The Office's Angela Martin is passionate about cats, the actress who plays the uptight accountant is passionate about something completely different - fish. Angela Kinsey recently hit up Capitol Hill to show her support for a series of bills designed to reduce seafood fraud.
“These bills are a no-brainer,” said Kinsey, referring to the Commercial Seafood Consumer Protection Act, the International Fisheries Stewardship and Enforcement Act, and the Pirate Fishing Elimination Act. “It’s just setting up checks and balances and making sure when fish comes to our port, we know where it comes from.”
According to the Washington Post, seafood fraud is when sellers attempt to pass off cheap fish as premium specimens or sneak endangered species into U.S. markets. The actress calls for better labeling, more inspections, and stricter enforcement. Chef-activist Barton Seaver, Gulf Coast fisherman Donald Waters, and officials from the conservation group Oceana are also onboard.
Unlike her Office hubby, Kinsey doesn’t have any political aspirations, though she does advocate for stray cats from time to time.
The Office will return to NBC for its ninth season this Fall.
