  1. I really can’t believe you would source Undercurrent News. What do they know? The answer is nothing!

  2. No one knows how much shrimp is ‘smuggled’ from Vietnam to China. There are so many fraudulent activities involving fish and fishery products between the two countries. The reason is that they are trying to disguise the true source of the products and tranship from China to other countries for a variety of illicit reasons.
