I have been calling shrimp "sea garbage" for a while. I also like to say that my health is as important as a pregnant woman's when it comes to the mercury in fish. But when I saw someone in front of me order shrimp I wanted to read a little of that linked page: "Upon arrival in the U.S., few if any, are inspected by the FDA, and when researchers have examined imported ready-to-eat shrimp, they found 162 separate species of bacteria with resistance to 10 different antibiotics."
It is so depressing to read shrimp is "america's favorite seafood." This sea crap is destroying the oceans from the bycatch dragging in other sea life. And it is so hard to get through to people hypnotized into thinking eating fish is "healthy." But for some reason fish has been the easiest thing for me not to eat.
The ocean is the sewer of our world. But, yeah, try telling people about toxins bioacummulating in sea creatures. Not to mention explaining why fish oil is garbage (even so-called PBC free, which is not free at all). Like all other animal abusing businesses, they do not spend billions on propaganda for nothing. And the supplement industry is in cahoots.
It's really horrible what humans do to the oceans, like they are an everlasting and bottomless source of "food" with some sort of invisible recycling capability. Then, we have people like Japanese businessmen who want to catch all the tuna and keep them in huge freezers, so when they finally kill them to extinction the prices will be as high as it gets.
For anybody interested in this and similar issues, I recommend reading "Sea of Slaughter", by the late great Farley Mowat.

Lomedin: Learned by chance that Kat Von D is vegan. Didn't have a clue who she was before.

Vegan: I'm on an antinatilist group and only found out about her on that. Had no idea who she was before as never heard of her.

cybernaut: Well, it can be a little hard for me to come here sometimes because of how negative things can get here. I realize there's much to be negative about, but it's still hard for me all the same.
