SHISHI, China, March 18, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- China Marine Food Group Limited (NYSE Amex: CMFO) ("China Marine" or the "Company"), a manufacturer of Mingxiang® seafood-based snack foods, "Hi-Power" marine algae-based beverages and a distributor of frozen marine catch, today responded to shareholder concerns over possible radiation contamination of its seafood supplies.
"Our supplies of raw fish and seafood come from the Taiwan Strait, which is located between Taiwan and Fujian Province, China and thus pose no threat of contamination. In addition, this area maintains a separate ocean current from those of the East Japan Sea. According to the nuclear radiation-monitoring station in Shanghai, large-scale and long-distance radiation spread is unlikely as the primary containment vessel and fuel rods in the nuclear plant in Japan were not damaged. Under the current circumstances, only those residents within 110 miles of the nuclear plant will be affected," stated Mr. Pengfei Liu, CEO and Chairman of China Marine.
"Furthermore, there has been no disruption in the buying pattern of our customers and we do not anticipate one will occur," Mr. Liu concluded.
