Coronavirus is turning us all into seafood Millennials…nicely written opinion piece…

MissingĀ at the top of the list and covering all generations regardless.

Food safety.

Frozen is a safety step and nowadays is the best technology available. That and washing hand SOP’s developed as past of the NASA HACCP protocols.

Sorry but fresh is just not where the last mile is gonna work for seafood – shrimp anyway. Maybe OK for salmon guys but hard to see how fresh fits in with food safety.

One wants convenience, this means deheading and peeling – fresh is not advisable thence. Too much handling. Freezing good quality step.

Also convenience may mean use of chemicals. Try to find a peeled shrimp that does not have an e-number in it.

Fresh anyway is never as good as live but we now know what wet markets entail and frozen technology is a best primary step.

Where does hunting for fish as seafood sit? Farmed is an option on the path to help against industrial resource exoitation….but probably low on list and under catch-all sustainability.

Farmed frozen clean deck using domesticated species best option.

Here is opinion piece by Demi…

Cruelty free prawn…

Shrimp, as the ancestors of insects, are rightfully concerned that their descendants are well treated

Apart from that, as long as the prawn can grow alongside humans on this blue planet earth then also much appreciated…….

…..our wild prawn habitat are being continually hunted…

…worse, our prawn coastal nurseries have been decimated by humans : huge swathes of mangrove forests cut down for building docks, shipping ports and even reclaiming land, building houses, firewood, charcoal for cooking – for centuries….

Prawn are thus attacked at all levels life cycle. Nurseries, adults.

So in comes aquaculture recently.

A salvation for our prawn.

It is a shared planet after all and if humans can grow in number why can’t the prawn – relatively speaking.

Mediterranean diet can help achieve sustainability goals, says FAO….shrimp big part of that diet!

Local consumptions are on increase as mature shrimp markets continue growth at pace.

Healthy, compact nutritional package, affordable….non conventional meat…

…..yes shrimp is a big part of Mediterranean diet guys!

FAO support aquaculture technology mainly as a food security issue whilst consider shrimp more as an exported commercial luxury good.

Time this changed!

Farmed commodity shrimp industry as the healthy disruptive protein….

Well yes and why not? Surely that is where fast market growth could be found?

Marketing shrimp as the nutritious alt meat protein.

Is this not perhaps another reason to distance aquaculture from fishing….and shrimp from fish.

Rising trend of malnutrition, conventionally grown meat? Shrimp aquaculture is the disruptive protein to both…

Gender Equality in Prawn….

First suggested step to this may be to better break down and understand who is who in the ‘seafood industry’.

Aquaculture and fishing? Fish and shrimp? Sustainable resource building or controlled natural resource exploitation?

As for human gender in shrimp farming the industry has created millions of jobs for women in the processing, post farmed shrimp harvest side. Industry is pretty gender equal in labor and, also, consider that all products getting into mature developed markets are subject to base level import regulatory labor laws (all rights under ILO) with appropriate certifications or, surely, would not enter under basic trade standards.
