China: The World's Fish Basket

Here's a revealing short video (3:39 minutes) the New York Times produced last December as part of their series, "Choking on Growth" that examined China's pollution crisis. The video shows China's fish farming industry.

Fish is fast losing its appeal for me. From the video:
"China is by far the world's largest seafood producer."
"The problem is the water is heavily polluted ... by oil, by arsenic, by heavy metals, and by the aquafarms themselves."
Fish feed: "It's just like sewage that they're throwing in."
