I see your point buying from local Florida farmers on the fish. But, farm raised is never as healthy and nutritious as wild caught. Farm raised (even in Fla) often use chemicals in the water. I would rather er on the side of safety and look for wild caught. I lived in Fla. many years and always bought from the boats coming in. Still do- when I am there. It is just not as common as it used to be do to overfishing. I do stay away from Swordfish and other fish that are far over-fished. For me -it is wild fish or no fish. Even in Michigan, the markets are full of Chinese seafood. And, the Great Lakes are all around us. I search and research and find Michigan Lake fish. I spent alot of time talking to owners of markets and making inquiries and suggestions re: farm-raised foreign fish and farm raised fish, in general.

All the fish in my freezer comes from Florida and Alaska.

Frank, I don't find that information anymore alarming then the way chickens are raised, or cattle is slaughtered... It is what it is, chickens, and turkeys are raised in filth, and we still eat them... My only hope is that in the future the way these animals are raised, will change... For the sake of my grandchildren, and their children to come...

Good to know about making sure that the tilapia is not from China, but then again I try to avoid most things from China. I will still eat tilapia, just not from China!

+1. Now if we could only stop the raping of our native wildlife for the Chinese market. Both here and in China!

Alarming? No. Paranoid and propaganda? Yes.

This is more than "they are raised in filth" and franky sounds like an unsubstantiated rumor. But it is ok to make claims that have no proof because it is China.

The number of facts that have been proven to be cultural bias, rumor and paranoid propaganda is staggering. I am not saying it isn't true, I would however welcome credible and verifiable sources for such allegations.
