So, the China Aquatic Products Processing and Marketing Alliance (CAPPMA) watches as salmon from Canada, Norway, Chile, New Zealand, the UK and other countries, is imported into China and enjoys massive growth over the last few years.

Just one problem - China doesn't produce any quality or quantity of salmon and can't compete against these pesky foreign products.

What to do?

How about they simply 're-define' what a salmon is?

Yes - you read that right - the government, advised by CAPPMA, just this week, declared that Rainbow Trout and Salmon are the same fish.

But first they just lied ...

Lo and behold .... CAPPMA members incliude the Qinghai based fishery that was exposed just recently when selling one third of the nation's salmon - when, in fact, they were selling trout as salmon!

So what to do .... protect themselves and work with the government to create a change in the law to make their fraud legal!

They've now ensured that its members - who unsurprisingly include the major rainbow trout suppliers - can now compete in the 'salmon' market legally, after years of fraudulently cheating Chinese consumers!

The losers in this nonsense? The consumers ... who are being sold salmon at a premiium price (salmon can be as much as three times the price of trout) .. when it isn't even salmon!

How's that for Fair Trade ... with Chinese characteristics!

Chinese consumers in both in and out of China know little about the food they consume. Majority rely almost entirely on professors and experts to tell them. Any information is discarded because it is never qualified. Hence, nonsense from professors and experts is total truth!
SAD!

To be fair rainbow trout is almost a salmon what's the big deal

The rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) is a trout and species of salmonid native.
Human lives mean nothing when the western warmongers see a bigger gain through war
