When it comes to the United States seafood industry, there is perhaps no better thinker and writer than Paul Greenberg.

From the salt marshes in Louisiana to the triangular trade of codfish, Paul touches on all corners of the domestic seafood industry and discusses the seriousness of the problems we face as a nation. Why is most of our seafood imported when we have such a bountiful supply? What does the future hold for our fish? Find out on a aquatic episode of What Doesn't Kill You. This program was brought to you by Cain Vineyard & Winery.

"More than 85% of the seafood Americans eat is coming to us from abroad. Meanwhile, about 3 billion pounds of what we catch, which would be enough to satisfy the per capita demand in this country, is exported." [03:00]

"The United States controls more ocean than any country on earth, but how we came to control all that water was a political slight of hand." [12:00]

"Even after everything that's been thrown against it, Louisiana is still the largest seafood producer in the continental United States." [25:00]
