it can be challenging to find non-Asian sources of many seafood items.
now, there are some curiosities in the situation - a fishing boat, registered in China, but fishing in the Gulf of Mexico, or in the Bering Sea, will have it’s product labelled “Product of China”
I simply do not buy any seafood from Asia - first there is the issue of sanitation / wholesomeness / etc. 90% of USA seafood is imported, the inspection rate is in the single digit % range. and if you look up the inspection / violation / seizure records, one may be tempted to stay away.
and adding insult to injury and fraud, google “Thai fishing slavery” - another very unpleasant aspect to cheep-cheep-cheep.
