Smuggled SeaFood
#1
One impact is the blackmarket sale of radioactive products. 

This notice is about a company named Wang whose base of operations is in the United States. 

20 Aug 2016 Qingdao Customs discloses cracking of smuggling case involving frozen seafood worth 230 million yuan 220.181.168.86/NewJsp/news.jsp?fileId=371211

People can't very well protect their health if their food is contaminated with any amount of radiation.

"The Qingdao Customs of east China's Shandong Province on Sunday disclosed the cracking of a smuggling case involving frozen seafood worth 230 million yuan.

The obviously low retail price of some high-end seafood products on the market drew the customs staff's attention early this year. And they then began to carry out the investigation.

"We found that some of the comb shell, King Crab and fish on sale were transported there by some vehicles of Guangxi license plate. It was very strange as these products were originally from Japan, Russia and the United States. So this was obviously abnormal," said Song Zhenning, a customs staff.

During the investigation, the customs put focus on an import and export corporation in Shandong, which has several branch offices in Shandong, Fujian, Guangxi, and Liaoning Provinces.

And moreover the backstage owner of the corporation surnamed Wang also established a company in the United States.

"To escape the punishment, Wang always stayed in the United States. And all the orders, contacts were carried out through the U.S. company. Also, the U.S. company signed contracts with companies based overseas. When his companies based in China received payments, the money would soon be transmitted overseas through underground banks," said Li Fudong, another customs staff.

As there was no accounting information available in China bout the company and its orders were disposed termly, the investigators met with a lot of difficulties.

It was not until the investigators received a message saying that Wang would arrive in China in June this year that they decided to carry out the arrest.

The suspect Wang was finally arrested at the Penglai International Airport on June 24 when he got off the plane.

At the same time, the customs staff arrested the other suspects in the branch offices, and got the evidence, finding that the group smuggled a total weight of over 5,000 tons of seafood."

Then they found fish, scallops and king crabs allegedly imported from Japan, Russia and the US had been transported to Shandong from Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region in southwest China, making a long detour compared to the usual transport lines.  Chinese prosecutors are preparing court cases to try the country’s biggest-ever seafood smuggling bust after scores of arrests nationwide of alleged seafood smugglers who smuggled product into China – and mislabeled salmon as mackerel in order to pay lower customs taxes.

Seafood is not well regulated - without strict enforcement of existing laws regarding contaminated products and illegal catch making it's way into the food stream, the best action is to not buy or consume seafood products. That includes kelp and salt derived from the Pacific Ocean.

We can dodge bullets only so long.   The links in the chain encircle us all.   

One of the primary ingredients for fertilizer to grow our food is 'fish' byproducts.

What is FISH FERTILIZER? Huh

What is FISH FERTILIZER? Huh

Ah, as a former landscaper and retail garden center manager I can answer that - fish fertilizer is, or was, an excellent source of N-P-K for plants. It's derived from fish protein. This product page explains in detail: http://www.arbico-organics.com/product/n...oCwhfw_wcB

Excerpt:
"Fish hydrolysate is an all-natural, highly nutritious protein fertilizer with an N-P-K of 2-4-1. It is made by utilizing naturally occurring enzymes present in fresh North Atlantic fish. It is made from fresh North Atlantic fish by a unique cold process that protects the vitamins, amino acids, enzymes and growth hormones. The nitrogen and other nutrients are chelated, so they are readily available to plants in almost any soil pH – especially helpful in alkaline soil. Unlike fish emulsions, Neptune's Harvest retains the fish proteins and oils and has no unpleasant odor."

Nothing about testing for radiation.
