GARLINGTON: Now They’re Coming For The Shrimp

We have written before about how Big Pharma has targeted livestock for injections with their synthetic mRNA shots.  But that cartel has a ravenous appetite, always looking out for other prey to devour – i.e., markets to conquer.  Its overlords seem to have settled on at least one new victim:


Dr. Joseph Mercola lays out the details:

Shrimp are slated to become the latest food source exposed to messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) vaccines, courtesy of ViAqua Therapeutics, an Israeli-based biotechnology startup. The company has secured $8.25 million in funding from venture capitalists for its oral RNA-based shrimp vaccine, which is intended to target white spot syndrome virus (WSSV).

With plans to administer its RNA-based product via coated feed, ViAqua suggests the RNA molecules can inhibit gene expression, silencing disease-affected genes with every meal. WSSV is a devastating condition in shrimp, leading to a 15% reduction in global shrimp production each year — an annual loss of about $3 billion.

ViAqua says challenge tests show its RNA-based formulation improved shrimp survival against WSSV, but at what cost? The use of mRNA in the food supply is controversial for good reason — no one knows what the long-term consequences will be.

This experimental approach to shrimp vaccination is particularly troublesome as their immune system is poorly understood:

Shrimp lack an adaptive immune system, the type that “remembers” exposures to infectious agents so it can mount a better response the next time it comes around. Because of this, it’s long been assumed that shrimp cannot be vaccinated. According to the Global Seafood Alliance:

“Scientific literature on shrimp has often adopted terms and approaches from mammalian immunology, but not always in a correct way. Such is the case in the use of the term “vaccination” in crustaceans. The principle of vaccination is based on two key elements of the immune system: specificity and memory. These two properties are not recognized in the immune systems of shrimp and other invertebrates.”

However, while shrimp don’t have adaptive immunity in the traditional sense, it’s becoming clear that they do have some defense against viruses, which is only beginning to be understood. In 2008, researchers with Australia’s University of Queensland explained, “There is mounting evidence for specific immune memory in crustaceans, including shrimp,” adding:

“It has been widely assumed that no such adaptive systems exist in invertebrates, thus vaccines have not been routinely developed and used in shrimp aquaculture. Invertebrates were considered to rely solely on an innate immune system characterized by generalized immune responses to conserved molecular structures of invading pathogens such as bacteria and fungi.

Some of these pathways are relatively well understood, involving an array of pattern recognition receptors interacting with serine proteases to initiate encapsulation, phagocytosis and an antimicrobial cascade based on the phenoloxidase enzyme system.

However, what is becoming more apparent is that the diversity and sophistication of innate responses in invertebrates is far greater than previously assumed. The invertebrate immune response to viruses is particularly poorly understood.”

ViAqua’s RNAi product claims to “enhance resistance to viral infections” in shrimp, and they have plans to develop additional mRNA vaccines for fish and other biotechnology products targeting additional shrimp viruses and other pathogens.

But shrimp pathogens of one kind or another are virtually guaranteed to persist in the intensive aquaculture farms where many shrimp are raised. Further, the risks of tinkering with shrimp genetics are completely unknown.

Many shrimp that are sold are already highly contaminated.  Adding a new mRNA compound would only make a bad situation worse:

Farm-raised seafood is among the most contaminated foods you can eat, shrimp included. Antibiotics are commonly used on farmed shrimp in an attempt to slow down pathogens. Not surprisingly, shrimp is often contaminated with antibiotic-resistant bacteria as a result.

One investigation by CBC News Marketplace found 17% — nine of the 51 packages of shrimp imported from Vietnam, Thailand, China, India and Ecuador — were contaminated with antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Among them, all but one showed resistance to multiple antibiotics.

Investigators purchased imported shrimp labeled “organic” as well as some with the “Best Aquaculture Practices” certification, which maintains that farmers only use antibiotics minimally.

So, while shrimp can be a healthy addition to your diet, it’s important to avoid farm-raised shrimp, which is the type served in most restaurants and the variety that’s slated to receive a gene-altering nanoparticle vaccine in its feed. When it comes to purchasing high-quality shrimp, look for those that are either wild caught or locally produced.

Shrimp have a prominent place in Louisiana’s culture – some of our most unique dishes include shrimp, and many of our people throughout the years have relied on shrimping in some way to make ends meet (15,000 people at present, according to the Louisiana Seafood Industry, who also point out that our finger-sized friends generate $1.3 billion for Louisiana).


Which brings us to Louisiana’s Dept. of Agriculture and Forestry.  According to Louisiana’s constitution, the Commissioner of Ag and Forestry is responsible for the ‘promotion, protection, and advancement of agriculture’ in Louisiana.  Mike Strain will serve another term as Ag Commissioner since he was unopposed in the 2023 election.  He therefore has fewer restraints on his freedom to act than he would if he had had a bruising political contest on his way back into office.  Few things would better fit his duty to ‘protect and advance’ Louisiana’s agricultural sector than banning any type of experimental mRNA product from being used on shrimp in Louisiana as well as a ban on the importation of any shrimp that have been treated with such a product – the importance of shrimp to Louisiana’s way of life would seem to demand at least that much.

Big Pharma is a rogue agent.  Its mRNA covid shots have been implicated in a wide variety of health problems.  The latest covid booster jab from these fine folks that was approved by the FDA was tested on precisely zero human beings and on only eight little ol’ mice (this, sadly, has been the norm for giant companies in the US over many years – propagandizing the public about the supposed safety and/or health benefits of various harmful products).  It is time for those who wield governmental power to start to rein in their antics.  If Comm. Strain were to do that with regard to mRNA ‘vaccines’ and shrimp, he should be praised and honored for making such a stand.
