Ocean Laws

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.

If you want to know where your food comes from and what toxins it may contain, you must take action to ensure this happens. To learn more about this subject, visit this page.
