Rather depends where you are. On my morning ride at 6am restaurant owners and market traders are down on the bridge buying prawns from the fishermen. That's in Chonburi city. I imagine it's the same at all coastal places. If you live inland maybe even Bangkok then you are probably eating farmed prawns.

In a chain restaurant in Chonburi in the mall the wife said the prawns were CP frozen prawns. Are they farmed ?

You would never eat Canadian Pink salmon in a can if you saw how they were processed, but there is not a better salmon than a Pink if it has been freshly caught with a fly rod. That goes for a lot of processed foods.

I was going to read the article until I saw it was the Daily Fail. What's causes cancer this week ? They've done virtually every vegetable and material known to man.

Guys ... believe what you want ... but I do have a little inside information about the dealings that go on in a Prawn/Shrimp Farm.

Antibiotics ... Ha !

You think that, given the costs of production the average Thai Farmer could afford that ... <deleted>.

When you eat a Thai Farm Prawn ... you are getting the best that nature can provide ... they have to be strong to survive!

david have a look at this

http://au.news.yahoo.com/today-tonight/latest/article/-/16329641/imported-seafood-concerns/

Did have a quick look at that ... though I have to show my prejudices as soon as I saw it was a 'Today-Tonight' researched article ... ermm.gif

The article mentioned talks about 'Asian' seafood without any specific mention of Thailand.

I read a few articles that imply that the New Zealand catch of Salmon is of a superior quality then that of Canadian variety.

I would say Alaskan is the best but when it comes to mussels (green lip) and oysters (Bluff oysters) NZ has the best. Best shrimp is a close call but I would go for Hudson bay if pushed. Best Crayfish would be from the Kaikoura region of NZ while the best crawfish would come from the Bayou Louisiana.

This guy knows his seafood (to be trusted) ... BUT i would introduce him to the 'Cromer Crab' ... best in the world and tasiest by far. ; ) (Freshly caught only - if you can stand the smelliness) I could ... divine straight for cooking. (Oops - that could be my 'hungry' button coming on - totally your fault LOL ... but do check out the 'Cromer'. - would be cool to know what you think)

And "If Slaughterhouses had Glass Walls", we'd all eat less meat. Google the part in quotes.

Ran into a guy one time in my travels that sells manure sweeteners for converting animal manure into animal feed.

Head off to many countries and they use their own (unrefined) poop to fertilize the vegetables they'll soon be eating.

In most developed countries, they use sewage to make fertilizers.

It's all about getting food to the masses at the lowest possible cost (not the lowest selling price) and greatest profit.

Sadly, I have neither the time, the land, nor the skillsets to grow my own food.

In 1988 potatoes gave you cancer. But a year later the potatoes were given the ok as it was discovered it was the meat people were eating them with. I think meat's ok to eat in 2013 but it has to have been killed humanely. LoL, if we listened to all this tripe over the years we'd be eating nothing but grass (so long as it wasn't the fertilized kind)

Not had it. I'll be in the UK during the summer and will more than likely pop over to NL via Harwich and that journey will be from the north of England. This puts Cromer fairly close to my path. I'm very partial to crab and of a patient disposition so I have no problem putting in the time and effort. The Alaskan king crab is damn good as is the Australian mud crab.

To get back on topic. I regularly manage to pick up a kilo of shrimp straight of the boat at the fish market. What are other people paying?
