Is your seafood from China?

"Is wild Chinese salmon sustainable?"

That's when I knew that things were getting strange.

Salmon don't live in China, but many salmon travel through China on their way from the ocean to your dinner. You can even find salmon in China when they were caught in the US and will be eaten in the US. And sometimes they are labeled "product of China" thanks to quirks in seafood labeling laws.

China is now the largest seafood importer into the US.

Maybe you don't speak Chinese, but your seafood does.

Well, if the Chemical Brothers taught us anything, it's that salmon can dance and that they "could go to Japan." Close enough.
