Etc., etc., etc. While you’re at it, don’t forget to check out the background stories concerning shrimp from Thailand. And even U.S. catfish are almost all “farm raised” and fed things we likely don’t want to know about, as they attempt to swim in conditions not even remotely similar to their wild ancestors’ habitat.
