VIDEO: 18kg of Chinese ‘GMO Tilapia’ destroyed at Asutsuare

Written by on October 19, 2018

Officials of the National Disaster and Management Organisation, and the National Security have destroyed some eighteen (18) kilograms of unwholesome tilapia at Asutsuare in the Shai Osudoku District of the Greater Accra region.

Reports indicate that the shoals of fish which belongs to a Chinese-owned fish farming company – Fujian Farm – were allegedly brought into the country from China.It is suspected that the Tilapia did not survive in the country because they were genetically modified. This comes after the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA), in October 2017 destroyed 4,500 cartons of unwholesome canned fish that were said to be on transit to Togo, but were diverted onto the Ghanaian market. The unregistered consignment labeled ‘Asahi’ was imported into the country by Dotsico Ventures.
