Prawns. Imported Vannamei and Tiger Prawns are grown in Asia using environmentally destructive techniques, and should be avoided at all costs. AMCS lists Wild and Australian Farmed Prawns as THINK TWICE, (including Crystal Bay). @AusMarConSoc lists ‘imported farmed prawns’ as SAY NO.
@AusMarConSoc recommends ‘haul caught school’ and ‘bay (Greentail) prawns’ from NSW as a BETTER CHOICE.
Prawns are a special occasion food – once reserved for Xmas, Easter and weddings only. We need to be mindful of how often we eat prawns, and where thy come from. Prawn cutlets and cocktails at the pub and most restaurants are like;y t be imported. Ask the question before ordering prawns.
