Fish raised in "fish farms" – commercial breeding pens where many fish are raised
– may contain up to ten times the concentration of toxic chemicals as fish in the wild.
PCBs, dioxins, and banned pesticides accumulate in these fish in varying concentrations
according to where in the world they were raised. Some countries’ coastal waters are more contaminated
than others. The USDA is about to pass regulations for seafood vendors, requiring them to label where
the fish where raised. However, the fish industry is lobbying against this.
