Unhealthy practice of a seafood farm in Vietnam includes raising shrimps with pig and goose manure.

CA MAU, VIETNAM-- Asian countries have a reputation for their well-known and delectable seafood dishes. In fact, millions of seafood from Asia alone are being exported to several western countries every year.

One of Asia's biggest importer in seafood is Vietnam. The banks of Vietnam sea are rich with multitudes of crab, shrimp and fish. However, you would surely change your mind once you've read this report from Bloomberg magazine.

A seafood farm located in the southern coast of Vietnam allegedly raises some of its seafood in pig and goose manure. This claim was backed up with some disturbing photos of unhygienic places and breeding grounds of the said farm.

Aside from this, the ice which covers the shrimps are made from tap water which is teeming with bacteria and possible contamination is present. Most farmers use manure to avoid the costs of commercial feeds.

Michael Doyle, director of the University of Georgia's Centre for Food Safety said that this unhealthy practice is dangerous for the consumers. "The manure the Chinese use to feed fish is frequently contaminated with microbes like salmonella," Doyle stated.

So the next time you're going to shop for seafoods, it always pay to be vigilant about the foods you're buying. As the old saying goes, 'You are what you eat'.
