I just read my June 2000 issue of Seafood Business and found an article on
the labeling of wild caught fish as organic. There is a quote from the
president of the NFI that states: "The air is polluted, and yet, an organic
farmer or rancher can get labeled as organic. Give me a break. All of that
pollution in the air falls down on the plants, and the water is absorbed back
into the food these chickens or cows are eating. There is no difference".
This is the rebuttal, I presume to those who say that wild caught fish should
not be labeled organic because there is no control over the rearing
I would be interested in soliciting opinions on the impact of pollution on
organic crops, and whether wild caught fish should be labeled organic.
