Seafood can be a great food, but not if the seafood industry sacrifices quality and safety in pursuit of profits. So says John Sackton, seafood industry journalist and blogger.
From a business perspective, it makes sense to serve the interests of buyers. More and more, buyers seem interested in quality, safety, sustainability, and simple reliability. Who wants to pay for 5 pounds of shrimp and get 4 and a half pounds? Who wants to buy fish treated with preservatives to mask a lack of freshness?
There have been too many scares and scandals lately, and the seafood industry needs to get it's own house in order...says one of the industry's own. I couldn't agree more.
