Bloomberg Businessweek: 'How Antibiotic-Tainted Seafood From China Ends Up on Your Table'

What happens when elusive Chinese seafood companies are actively discouraged from exporting their dangerous seafood to the U.S. -- and still find stealthy and elaborate ways to do so? Bloomberg Businessweek examines this very question in this week's jaw-dropping cover story, "How Antibiotic-Tainted Seafood From China Ends Up on Your Table."

If the Associated Press' "Seafood from Slaves" series was the most urgent food (and especially seafood) writing of 2015, this is the most essential food reporting of 2016. The Bloomberg cover story offers an appalling account of how reckless Chinese aquaculture is when it comes to creating superbugs that are more and more resistant to antibiotics.


Yet, as slavery and trafficking persisted in the Southeast Asian seafood industry a year after the AP broke its shocking story, the Bloomberg cover story underscores that problems that existed in the early 2000s continue to plague the seafood industry internationally today, and that efforts to fix these problems amount to whack-a-mole successes. 

This reaffirms to us, at New Wave Foods, that we need to disrupt seafood on a fundamental level and not merely chip away at trivial (at best) fixes. We're so excited you're with us in this mission.
