How can I tell where my Seafood is from?
I am playing Junior hockey this year and I'm staying with a billet family they stock the shelves with no name brand canned tuna..! Anyways google doesn't seem to show useful information anymore so I can find nothing about the origin of this seafood! Can any body point me in the right direction because I have avoided seafood all together unless I know for certain it wasn't from the pacific.. Thank you so much!

I buy tuna from John West because they have this tracking number on the can you can use to check where it was fished from on their site.

It says chicken of the sea on the can, so I'm not sure if it comes from chicken farms on land or if there are sea chickens. I have never seen a sea chicken, but it's probably a lot like a duck I imagine.

If its black and slimy and smells like a old motor, its from the Gulf.

If it has four eyes and glows... it's from the Pacific,

Re: How can I tell where my Seafood is from?
I'm pretty sure the majority of canned Tuna IS from the Pacific-I just avoid it altogether. I've also stopped buying ANY frozen seafood from the grocery store, because even most of the shrimp comes from disgusting shrimp farms in Vietnam, (you can find plenty of articles with pictures on these things being shut down). I don't trust our USDA to inspect ANY seafood and have known of MANY people getting sick.

Unfortunately, I rarely eat seafood at all anymore, but will occasionally get some fresh Cod, clams or lobster from the North Atlantic...but that's rare because you pay a LOT for the GOOD, SAFE stuff. Although I'm living here in the NorthEast now, it's still VERY rare to splurge on seafood.

LONG before the Gulf oil disaster, I'd done a 3 year externship with an infectious disease Doc in a Southern city. I'd LOVED oysters and shrimp and often went with family and friends to splurge on fresh catches on the coast. Then I started seeing patients with horrible parasitic diseases-many of them residents and fishermen from the coast that had been transferred to our hospital. After seeing a 40 year old man dying in ICU, who looked more like 80, covered in boils and skin peeling away-and finding out this parasite was rampant in Gulf shellfish-i quit eating it. It was more than that actually- it was the number of people we saw for parasitic, fungal and bacterial diseases that originated in our delicious gulf seafood. My daughter now works in an ER not far from the Gulf coast and says that since the Gulf oil spill, cases of these diseases-and other food poisoning they can't always pinpoint-specifically from people who'd eaten seafood from the Gulf; have tripled. hiding

After what we've seen-we'd rather be safe than sorry.

We've only explored a small percent of the world's oceans. There very well may be a species of fish that wears hats and glasses. I'm probably wrong though and it's actually canned alien meat.

If it has mercury in it,it is from the atlantic, and if it has strontium 90 in it,it is from the pacific. If it gives off a blueish light when you mix it with mayo, don't eat it.
