Chicken Poop and Fish

I don’t know how I missed this article by Spence Cooper on Tyler’s birthday 2 years ago but it is, um, interesting.  You can read the full article here (not while you’re eating) which I strongly encourage if you ever eat farm raised fish.  Some particularly lovely notes:

Food producers in China regularly use untreated human and animal waste for feeding farmed fish…

….chicken coops with as many as 20,000 birds are often suspended in rows above ponds used for farming fish and shrimp.  The sea life feeds on the chicken waste that falls in the water.

And most importantly:

…more than 80% of the fish and seafood consumed in the U.S. is imported – much of it from Asia

Read those labels everyone!
