BBC4 Thursday 16 December 9:00 pm The Price of Prawns

Funnily enough I was eating prawns on Saturday, and I wondered if there were any practices/health issues akin to the salmon debate on the JO site (which has predictably carreered into stupidity now).

Loads and loads and loads of reasons not to buy imported prawns it's an EXTREMELY destructive business, Honduras is I believe one of the better regulated countries
