11. Remember that in the U.S., "the most highly tested of all seafood" according to the FDA,

we smell test our seafood. One of the Gulf shrimping companies I have worked for the BP oil spill started paying for lab testing so he could be sure of his shrimp and track where each boat load was caught so he would know where not to catch his shrimp b/c of Corexit and hydrocarbons. He found new industry clients who wanted even more testing. He refuses to sell the tainted catches which somehow would pass the vaunted "smell test!" There is a lot of fraud and a lot of contaminated seafood from all over the world. Most seafood purchased in the U.S. is imported from other countries such as those in S.E. Asia where the water from their rivers is highly polluted. We will destroy the oceans 1st because they belong to no country. Once the phytoplankton starts to die, we start to die, no oxygen! The single biggest source of oxygen generation comes from the sea, w/o which life on this planet will die.
