"50% to 60% of all fish imports in Alabama are rejected."That's incredible. How much seafood would the US be rejecting if it inspected more than 1% of imports? (Maybe that's why we don't inspect.)
"Consumers may be getting a dose of antibiotics with their seafood dinner."I wonder if this reduces beneficial gut bacteria. If so, it would impact bowel function and nutrient absorption.
Alabama's Commissioner of Agriculture "witnessed fish farmed in sewage!" As if that was disgusting. We farm a lot of our produce and grains in sewage sludge. But the EPA turns a blind eye because they can't come up with a better way to dispose of it.
There are people in this country fighting to prevent increasing that 1% inspection rate. Some want to do away with inspections and government interference entirely. I'm not one of them.
