Far and away the most popular post, and far and away the one with the most meat, is: The Strictest Laws in the World? WRONG.
Fish farms are always saying they operate under 'the strictest laws in the world'. Two years ago they said this in Chile, Canada, Scotland and Norway at the same time. As the laws of every country are different, and Chile is widely acknowledged as the dirtiest fish farm country out there, the claim is false.
Fling this list at Marine Harvest, Cermaq and Grieg Seafood the next time they make the claim.
