The U.S. has evidently signed a major contract with the Chinese who will purchase $3 billion worth of soybeans from American farmers, with more purchases to come. As the soybean is one of the few beans that is NOT native to the US, this may sound implausible. But one of the biggest Chinese food businesses is now aquaculture--feeding fish stocks to fish being farm raised is getting too expensive, and fish stocks are being rapidly depleted--so aqua growers are substituting soy protein for the food that comes naturally to most fish--other fish.
Does anyone know what this will mean for the fish, or for those who eat them?
