Lets talk about fish imported from China (Sitting in Walmart freezers)
Do you have any good info to share with me regarding Asian imported fish?

If you look at most catfish and tilapia in the freezers, they are all imported from China. I have a strong feeling that these fish are not safe for my family to eat.

The Chinese give the fish antibiotics and treated food that causes the fish to grow plump real quick.

I read somewhere before that the water the fish swim in at the fish farms is treated with hormones to cause them to plump up.

I will only eat wild caught fish.

That is what I suspected. I don't think catfish and tilapia are the only ones shipped in from Asia. I bet the shrimp and crabs are too.

I just watched a show the other day showing how they catch the fish for the Fila-o-fish at McDonalds.

They actually catch them and process them in massive ships in Alaska. It is real fish.

Being that I have a years worth of seafood put away, I'd never buy fish from China.

Some of my stock is smoked, some canned, some frozen.

Halibut/cod/rock fish/trout/Dolly Varden/muscles/razor clams/king crab/Dungeness crab/snow crab/shrimp

All of it fresh and straight out of the pristine Alaskan waters.

Who knows what the hell you're getting from China. Hell, they're trying to kill us.

Nasty China Fish...

Maybe you guys should think about how long shippers at some spots of the country let that frozen food sit-out of the coolers because they are out of room and waiting on trucks to pick-up before they can clear room for them.

they do have safe-gaurds in place,small computerized reader is placed inside those big pallets that gives readings of temps and they check them from point A to point B but some that have fallen below the req.temps do get passed on out the door and into the market where you buy them.


On this i do have inside info,You would be in shock at how much gets the ok and is shipped anyway.
good luck with those frozen foods.

That is what scary, most people don't realize where it is coming from. Given the lead toy fiasco, I doubt there are many safeguards.

Hell, if you can ship fish halfway around the world for cheaper than domestic production they have to be cutting some major corners somewhere?

Y'all find a local fish market and talk to the fish monger. He'll tell you where the fish is from and what to avoid.

The bagged up shit sold in grocery and big box stores is questionable.

Tilapia and catfish is farm raised and not a first choice for safety or flavor...fish tend to take on the taste of their enviroment and what they eat....they swim in enclosed areas in their own poo....they get dosed with antibiotic to keep them alive for market...nuff said....

For cheap fish I rather go with Pollock, whiting, or lings...at least they're free ranging until netted....

Re: Lets talk about fish imported from China (Sitting in Walmart freezers)
I would NEVER eat seafood from a store or restaurant. Seafood spoils in ONE DAY. I will only eat seafood I caught myself, or bought right from the boat as soon as they come in. And even then, only if I know the guys.

I've spent my entire career as a dive boat captain. I speared the fish, I know it was swimming today. I know all the guys on the charter fishing boats, and they are the ones who told me NEVER buy shit in the store or restaurant, because they palm off two or three day old shit on the store and restaurant buyers all the time.

Stick with seafood from your local area. I live in the Caribbean, dorado, snapper, grouper, hogfish, all live right here so should be fresh. Salmon, haddock, cod, other cold water fish are coming from hundreds or thousands of miles away. How fresh can they be? Remember, fish not iced down will go bad in a matter of HOURS.

You know that fishy smell? That's the smell of ROT. Fresh fish has NO SMELL AT ALL.
