Who cares anymore where it originates? The only thing that matters is the price.
A life spent making mistakes is not only more memorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.

I have been trying frozen fish recently and found poor flavor, color, texture and moistness in fish fillets from China, Russia, and Vietnam. I haven't tried any from Thailand, India, Malaysia, or Indonesia but I'll avoid them until methods improve. Japanese frozen fish seems to be a good bet, but hard to find.

Frozen fish from Alaska, Chile, Canada, and Norway has been good, at least reminding me of fresh fish. It can be pricey, as in the $27 bag of Kirkland sockeye or sustainable Chilean sea bass; if price matters, buy Chinese.

Why buy frozen fish when there are plenty of fresh fish to eat? Never enjoyed any of the frozen fish no matter where it originates from.

I moved away from urban centers, so I tend to stock up good items for the freezer. I still buy fresh fish from RCSS and first nation door to door sellers, but I want my freezer space to offer a certain amount of choice.

Maybe I am over-reacting, but my new policy is I am no longer putting anything into my body that is produced in China.

Food, drink, toothpaste, vitamins.

Just seems like much of their industry is the wild west. Little control or regulation
good idea. i'm going to jump on this plan as well mainly for a few reasons:
1. health
2. morals (re: dont support shark finning, throwing things at animals in zoos, etc.)
3. support canadian companies if possible

actually it's becoming more common if you read about it. yes i've seen clips, read articles, and have been to china twice. how else are you supposed to learn about something? magically absorb it through your feet?
if i choose to not put chinese made food products in my body that's a fair choice. i'm not boycotting chinese i will still purchase goods, just not the ones that will be eaten.

as for you, how many claims of plastic rice, lead in milk products, capsules made of fetuses, etc etc. do you need to start to believe it?

here's some reading for you:

so you went to china twice just to learn something about them?
that you choose to not eat chinese food is YOUR choice, not fair choice. you don't know what fair means. of billion chinese people, how many people eat fetus capsules? and do you actually believe that the plastic rice thing is not a hoax? let me guess, you think fake eggs are real too.
i believe the chinese have done a remarkable job considering their over billion population.
i despise news sensationalism.

no that wasn't the main point of my trip. do you have to travel to switzerland to learn about the large hadron collider? do you have to travel to anarctica to see emperor penguins? fetus capsules were being exported outside the country, my point wasn't about how many chinese people are eating them. there was recently a large shipment seized of these things in south korea :http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/world_n ... mains.html

let me guess you think the photos of pollution in beijing are photoshopped? they have done a remarkable job with over a billion people, and so has india. i'm not singling china out there are plenty of things from other places that i wont buy either.
anyway that's my piece, obviously we don't see eye to eye so no point in going any further with this.

lol, it is YOU who said 'how else are you supposed to learn about something?', after boasting about visiting china twice.
your memory isn't so good, eh?
you presume a lot.
and if you are trying to compare the food supply situation between india and china, you really know nothing about the difference between the countries.

Also don't forget the plasticizer DINP they also used for making bottled drinks, such as tea.

Hard to find non Chinese frozen fish now. Even Highliner has cracked and uses mostly Chinese fish.
