Made in China or Taiwan?

Ok, I have been hearing a lot of negative stuff about fish that comes from Asian countries. I've tried looking up information on the internet about health and safety concerns, and legally (like from the USDA), there is nothing that says anything bad. If you look at what is out there, it'll make you never want to eat another piece of fish, ever. I really want to make the cod dish listed on the main Spark page, but if it is that full of pollutants, I don't know. I am in turmoil about whether or not to eat fish I haven't caught myself any more. I love tuna, and I can eat a whole can with a salad and it pulls my protein up and keeps my calories down. I thought fish was good for you, but now? Not so sure. I know catfish are bottom dwellers anyway, and eat all the trash and all of that other stuff in the water, but this is way beyond that. This is farmed fish that we buy at our grocery stores every day!!!

I am officially a Georgian. Got my new driver's license yesterday. I wish I could have kept my Florida one because you can really tell the weight loss in my face between that one and my new one. Off to get my tag tomorrow. I hate leaving the dogs alone two days in a row, so putting a day in between. They really stress out when I am gone. And I didn't want two days of stress in a row myself.

I tried to go get catfish (again, the fish..eek) and a baked potato and salad bar at my favorite local restaurant, but I guess they are only open for dinner on the weekends. Do you suppose God is trying to tell me something, or is it just a coincidence.

Paranoia signing out.

    I have a pond that kinda' needs to be fished out because it is just a huge1/8 mile aquarium. BUT I love it the dogs love it and people have fished for fun summer and winter. My best advice to you is don't go too far. SomeOne will strike up a conversation with you and eventually like you enough (if your dogs approve) to let you do some private fishing on it that does not need a permit. God bless.

    Farmed fish must be safe, surely? Can you get that?

    Keep up the good work. You are doing brilliantly.
