Been seeing lots of brown, grey and green globs of human waste floating in and out with the tide. Rivers up north are too poluted so now boats from the north hang out in St Marys. We should not be eating fish from local rivers until the DNR, City Council and SMPD get control of the situation. At the very least SMPD should seen some patrol officers down to scope up the turdlets wiht a net.

The dirt under the nails must be real heavy killing marsh grass in Dark Entry Creek. I would not eat anything caught out of that river if I knew it.

It's not just our river and creeks. I drove to St. Simons a couple of days ago. The marsh along US 17 between the Lanier Bridge and the St. Simons causeway looks exactly like ours. Large sections have the black, dead stalks of previously alive marsh grass sticking out of the mud.

Does anyone know the real cause of these periodic die offs of marsh grass? It seems to recur every 3 - 5 years.

Probably love aboard yachties and boaters who flush their turds and sewege into our rivers. However, DNR is too busy harrasing fisherman and shrimpers to take a look at illegal live-a-boards.

St Marys City Council have their heads too far up their arses looking for another way the real estate cartel and tourist types can exploit homeowner and homebuyers.

You need something else to occupy your time.

What do you think of all the fish and mammal sea life poop that ends up in the water? You sound like a PETA type or a fanatic tree hugger who cannot put things into proper perspective........perhaps even the idiot who could not get the "marijuana grow houses" out of his mind.

Port chop you obviously are occupied with who I am. Why don't you stick it where the sun don't shine. You are nothing but a go along yes man POS who never had an original thought in your pathetic life. You are probably a local petty official employed in a menial government position where you spend your days counting paper clips and waiting at month end for your unearned paycheck.

Look, I don't like the sail boaters taking advantage of the tax payers any more than you. And I sure as hell don't like all the sail boats that are not attended to being left at anchor, breaking loose, and ending up in the marsh or sunk on the edge of the marsh. We have three boats that were added to this category just this summer.

But turds in the water really doesn't mean a thing to the environment or the health of the local fishery.

Calm down.

If our planet has no axial tilt, We would have no seasons; But, we do have axial rotation and we do have seasons. Certain times of the year we should not eat certain foods for a number of reasons the animal and plant life are just not fit for human consumption. The answer is simple To many Humans.

Mother nature will not allow this to continue much longer.

Ever wonder if the population of USA only had 50 Million people and the rest of the world had a reduction in humans how the quality of life would be so much better for those living. One day the reduction will take place.

Poor "Hatched here". He doesn't even know the name of the fish, yet he claims to be an expert on it.

It's Basa or Swai you bimbo. It is a relative of the catfish and it is farmed in pens in Vietnam. It is a great tasting fish and it is perfectly safe to eat.

I talked to the folks at St. Marys Seafood last evening. It is one of their favorite fish.

It is the very same fish that made Wesley and Terri's fish sandwich so yummy when they ran Lucky Dawgs. Shark Bite also serves it on their fish sandwich, or at least they did the last time I had one there.

You are a total idiot - the victim, no doubt, of lib educators from kindergarten through grad school.

If you can handle the truth about human population growth, here is all you need to know:

When trade with Vietnam resumed in 1994, U.S. seafood importers started shipping fillets from a Vietnamese catfish called basa, or bocourti. But most of what’s sold in the market today as basa isn’t basa. Real basa, P. bocourti, is one of 21 species in the Pagasiidae family of catfish found throughout Southeast Asia. Cambodian and Vietnamese fish farmers have raised basa in cages along the Mekong River for decades. But P. hypophthalmus, or swai, known locally as tra, has become the preferred farmed species. Inferior to basa, but faster and cheaper to raise, swai has been marketed as China sole, river cobbler and even basa, adding to the confusion of unwary buyers. Also labeled catfish, it was eagerly accepted as a cheap alternative to the farmed U.S. species. But such labeling is no longer allowed, following a Food and Drug Administration ruling that only species from the family Ictaluridae can be sold as true catfish.

More than 90 percent of the catfish imported to the United States originates in Vietnam, a country that has become the largest competitor to U.S. Delta region catfish farmers.

An international government debate over the catfish trade is ongoing. Under the 2008 Farm Bill, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) proposed amending regulations for both domestic and imported catfish to protect food safety and strengthen domestic and international trade regulations.

Two varieties of Vietnamese catfish subject to the new regulations are Swai (Tra) and Basa. Both varieties are widely farmed in Vietnam, and many consider the fillets a delicacy, as they are wider and thinner in appearance than catfish farmed by U.S. catfish farmers. In 2002, the Federal Government ruled that Vietnamese varieties of Basa fish could not be called catfish. In 2009 the named changed to Swai (an alternate name for Tra).

Regardless of name, Vietnamese Swai and Basa are not subject to the same inspections as other imported catfish because these fish are not considered catfish.

All catfish must meet strict inspection requirements. Among the health and safety concerns associated with Vietnamese catfish are issues such as polluted water and the use of antiquarian facilities. American catfish farmers have taken action to draw awareness to these issues and have developed a coalition which produced a marketing campaign calling American catfish “the safe choice” catfish.

In the meantime, Vietnam catfish farmers and other international exporters of fish need to show proof that the water used to farm fish is safe and unpolluted and provide observational data related to their farming practices in order to meet American food safety requirements. The issue of tracking is essential to allow country of origin to be traced if a food safety issue were to occur in the United States.
