The California crabbing season has been shut down indefinitely. Read here: Cali Shuts Down Crab Season "Indefinitely" Cites "Naturally-occurring Toxin," but Whistleblowers Reveal Real Culprit Is Radiation | The Daily Sheeple Now is a good time for a Consumer Alert: It is long past the time that ANYTHING harvested from the Pacific Ocean can be safely eaten. It is ALL contaminated with radiation to some degree. News Flash: There is NO amount of radiation that a person can be safely exposed to. None. Nada. Zero. Zip. Every X-ray, including dental x-rays are a game of radioactive Russian Roulette. The odds of death are small, but the chance of death is real. And, just like a winning Lottery ticket (only different) it WILL happen to someone. So: Eat no Pacific Whitefish. That includes those crunchy diamond-shaped fish sold at Long John Silver's. It also includes that yummy Imitation Crab Salad on the Food Bar in just about every restaurant chain. And any and all tuna. The "Crab" is made from fish sludge (surimi) that includes bits everything with fins and many things without--and it all comes from the Pacific. Surimi: 9 Things to Know About Surimi [Fake Crab] | Fooducate On a Japanese factory ship every iota of fish-like meat scrap goes through the surimi presses, because once it's bleached protein, it doesn't look like hagfish or some other creature of the Deep that you wouldn't eat if you caught it live. The above reference is sweetness-and-light, written by someone who's never seen the slime line of a Pacific trawler. Likewise, eat no shrimp except possibly Gulf Shrimp. There you are weighing a lesser radiation danger against a higher chemical toxin danger. Roll the bones, if you wish. (Hell, We all gotta go sometime!) ALL Pacific tuna and ALL Pacific Salmon is also contaminated. You won't see a lot of Pacific Salmon on the market this year because 99% of them died at sea before they could come inland to spawn. The Salmon spawning season this year basically didn't happen. I recently read an article about six prime sashimi-quality Bluefin Tuna that had were confiscated because they were too radioactive to eat--and they were worth about $230,000 per fish. As far as I know, the only fish you can now eat safely are inland-farmed tilapia & catfish--and the fish you aquaculture for yourself. The crab industry in California is a $60,000,000 a year industry. That's a lot of fees and tax money to the State. They wouldn't cancel that much revenue if they could possibly avoid it. The fact that they are cancelling it now merely means that they should have cancelled it three years ago.
