NC Seafood

Is a Human Health Crisis Looming over NC?

Or is it Already Here?

While CCTA has been reporting on and investigating the NC House proceedings on  HB-483, the “Let Them Spawn” bill, a much bigger and more urgent issue with our seafood has come to our attention. This is not a political issue or a battle between two interest on the same issue, it is definately a Human Health issue with plenty of supporting data. We hope to draw attention to this issue and inform the public of it’s severity and hope that our legislators see the impact the passage of HB-483 could have on the health of our citizens by limiting their choices to healthy local seafood. I think it’s time to put the brakes on and say Whoa, lets look at all the issues not just the ones special interest are pushing and spending big bucks on.

First let me share some background on HB-483 provided by Jerry Schill ( Jerry Schill is the Executive Director of the North Carolina Fisheries Association ) Click the link below.

    This is a serious health threat in North Carolina and elsewhere in the USA, Rick. I surely hope people pay attention and we’re able to mitigate this situation starting by looking at how passage of HB-483 (Let Them Spawn) would make the problem worse, and adding ways to help consumers understand what seafood is safe and wholesome and which is dangerous so that we can make informed decisions.
