Sydney has a shocking inside story: 90% of the seafood eaten by Chinese tourists is imported from China, and the smelly ones are fried...
As a seafood controller, I am so lucky to live in Sydney! Because Sydney has the largest seafood market in the southern hemisphere-Sydney Fish Market
Ranked second in the world, second only to the Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo, Japan
Many foodies have commented that if Japan’s Tsukiji market has an atmosphere, then the Sydney fish market conveys a taste.
Here, as many as 100 kinds of seafood are freshly marketed every day! Not only can you buy the freshest seafood ingredients, there are also many shops that provide services that are sold and cooked, and nearly zero pollution is also the basis for the delicious and hygienic seafood.
Therefore, in the eyes of seafood foodies, the Sydney Fish Market is a clean and fresh must-have "pilgrimage" place.
However, Fish Market employees broke out surprising shady on the Internet! After so many years, it turns out that we were all deceived by the Sydney Fish Market!
According to public perception, the seafood at Fish Market is supplemented by Australian fishermen and delivered to the fish market before dawn, so the freshest is guaranteed.
However, the sources said that many fish store’s fish are made from foam preservation boxes, which are labeled "product of thailand", "product of Malaysia", "product of Indonesia", but many of them are "product of china" (All seafood from China and Southeast Asia).
Only raw oysters, lobsters, and salmon are local, and 90% of other seafood is imported from Southeast Asia and China! The whistleblower claimed that a crab with dozens of yuan from Hainan, shipped to Australia, was sold to Chinese tourists by unscrupulous merchants for dozens of Australian dollars.
It is equivalent to a Chinese tourist traveling to Australia for eight or nine hours to eat seafood. It is aimed at the freshness, zero pollution, and high quality of Australian seafood, but in the end they spend a high price of Australian dollars to buy back their own things.
Since seafood is not local, it involves transportation. The more terrifying thing is:
Before the seafood from many fish markets is transported from other places, because of the long distance, the businesses in Sydney will preservatively treat the seafood.
What should I do with rotting and smelly seafood that cannot be saved by antiseptic treatment? Fried and fried, grilled and grilled, and continue to sell to customers.
The whistleblower said, “Especially the squid, when you open the fresh-keeping box, the green smelly water flows out. Then, it is fried and blackened and sold to customers to cover up the taste. Many fried seafood, the first is The taste is good, and secondly, it helps merchants deal with products with heavier taste."
And Fish Market employees rarely eat Fish Market food themselves.
I thought it was just the unscrupulous practice of domestic roadside stalls, but I didn't expect it to be as dark as the crows in the world!
The whistleblower said that when his colleague saw Chinese customers coming, they would privately say "stupid people are coming", which means that a fool is coming.
And it is said that their approach to "fools" is: Most businesses will set two prices, one is for locals, and the other is for Chinese tour groups-the prices have naturally doubled several times.
Moreover, if you buy fresh seafood in a shop and want to process it in a fish market shop, you will most likely be stolen or even transferred!
However, there are also many netizens who said that it is not a day or two for the Sydney Fish Market to do these silly things. You can treat it as a scenic spot and just take a look.
Many Chinese who have lived in Australia for a long time know that the seafood that is really not black-hearted is made by local restaurants, or simply caught by themselves.
As ordinary people who eat melons, you have to keep your eyes open when you buy it!
However, according to the whistleblower, at least salmon, oysters and shrimps are basically local products; as for other seafood, you can buy them from businesses you can trust.
