China has taken the extraordinary and unprecedented move of banning the importation of all shellfish from the US West Coast as shared in this story from ENENews. Meanwhile, the still sleeping MSM & Californians celebrate the remaining sea life in the ocean approaching their doorsteps while 145 miles off the shore of California, 98% of the seafloor is covered in Fuku death sea creatures.
Is it any wonder China is taking these measures to protect their population and WHY isn’t the US govt doing the same thing? The ban continues indefinitely and for some reason, does not include the shell fish from Southern California as shared from ENENews with a video also below from BeautifulGirlByDana: Fukushima Pacific Ocean 6 Year Countdown To Extinction.:
‘Unprecedented’: China bans all imports of shellfish from U.S. West Coast — Official: “They’ve never done anything like that that I’ve ever seen” — Includes Washington, Oregon, Alaska and N. California — Gov’t says it will continue indefinitely
KUOW, Dec. 13, 2013: China Imposes First-Ever West Coast Shellfish Ban [...] China has suspended imports of shellfish from the west coast of the United States — an unprecedented move [...]
China said it decided to impose the ban after recent shipments of geoduck clams from Northwest waters were found by its own government inspectors to have high levels of arsenic and a toxin that causes paralytic shellfish poisoning. The restriction took effect last week and China’s government says it will continue indefinitely. It applies to clams, oysters and all other two-shelled bivalves harvested from the waters of Washington, Oregon, Alaska and Northern California.
Northwest Public Radio, Dec. 13, 2013: China has closed its doors to all imports of West coast shellfish. Chinese officials tested samples of geoduck clams and found elevated levels of arsenic and a toxin that causes Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning. [...] Jerry Borchert is in charge of monitoring toxins in shellfish for the Washington Department of Health. He says China’s actions are unusual. [...] “They’ve never done anything like that that I’ve ever seen since I’ve been here where they would not allow shellfish from this entire area based on potentially two areas or maybe just one area, we don’t really know yet.”
Last year the U.S. exported more than half a billion dollars worth of shellfish – with China as its biggest customer. [...] There’s no telling when China will lift its import ban, but shellfish on the market in the U.S. are safe to eat.
The Olympian, Nov. 24, 2013: In response to questions from diggers, the state said that in tests done to date, no fish or shellfish off the Pacific coast have radioactive contamination that would pose a risk to people who eat them.
