Some years ago just after Poland gained its freedom, I was asked to visit a foundry with a view to invest. I was advised to only eat chicken and veal as anything that took longer to grow contained toxins. River fish was completely of the menu.
Asian farmed seafood and river fish has well documented warnings over here, call me a wet brit liberal but once again the demands of the west has caused this prob not only for us but for the poor local people.

Tilapia farming started in Egypt at the time of the Pharoahs, all they had to worry about was the nile turning red and the shadoof breaking down.

an unfair accusation, Bolas... The Japanese and their thirst for more more MORE sushi is a big part of the fish problem.

Americans, proportionately, eat very little fish other than canned tuna.

I normally steam mussels in white wine like that, but am thinking of trying this recipe (the one for beer-steamed mussels) tomorrow night (mussels from I believe out East--they were on special this week):

Beer Steamed Mussels | Mussels in White Wine Sauce | Steamed Mussels Recipe

I used to frequent a mussels "bar" and have yet to encounter a way of preparing mussels I didn't like. I don't recall ever having any that were steamed in beer...I like cilantro ... what do you think Rocklobster?

an unfair accusation, ChefJune... the Japanese eat little, almost zero, farmed sushi, and nearly equally zero, any freshwater fish, most having never yet heard of tilapia. Both east and west are at fault - they're the aquatic rabbits of Africa and can be exported most anywhere as a crop, and heartland Americans are discovering that other-than-canned fish can taste okay.

At this point I would like to remind everyone we try to keep the politics out of food talk.

Thank you.

Greenling Cod is delicious, too. I am picky about the cod I eat. When I can afford it, I order overnight delivery from Alaska. The cod is not like you get in restaurants in the lower 48.

Yellowtail snapper with a mango-banana crusted coating. I came up with my own recipe tailored after one at the Pier in Ft. Lauderdale. Delicious.
