All our fresh fish was taken back...
« on: March 25, 2011, 12:07:13 PM »
Due to the events out of our control (acts of nature and then some), our distributor came back and took our order. Something to do with complying with the FDA.

Sorry folks, no fresh fish from anywhere since they wanted to destroy any and all foods that even came into close proximity of possible radiated foods.

What kinds of fish were in that order and what were their points of origin?

Taka sent out an email earlier this week indicating all fish from Japan was being held up by FDA.

Yeah, somewhere in that general neighborhood. Some where from New England and California...

Can anyone confirm that there is a general sushi/sashimi shortage? (say that 10 times fast)

From Taka just this afternoon:

"FDA is holding Japanese fish again.
This is 2nd times so far. I have no idea in the future."

Yes. West of Hawaii, but tracking is going to be difficult because there are so many species that regularly migrate, and as we know the migratory fish at the top of the food chain are already carrying dangerous levels of mercury.

Thanks for the update, HD and Lamar.  I guess my wife's annual birthday sushi dinner will have to be switched to something else.

I saw on the news this morning that the FDA chief was saying that there's no problem with the fish - then I saw another segment saying the FDA found some radioactivity in Japanese fish. I think things are going to be pretty confused for a while.
