Fish therapists are being paid thousands of dollars a year to take fish from the oceans to the meatpacking plants and other slaughterhouses, according to an Associated Press analysis of federal records.
The industry has become a $400 billion-a-year industry.
The practice of fish therapy is based on the theory that the animals are dying from various causes as they are slowly eaten by people, with the goal of curing disease and helping animals to be less susceptible to disease.
The treatment includes the removal of parasites, bacteria, toxins, toxins that are harmful to animals, and parasites that are in their food and are harmful for humans.
But the practice of treating fish in this way can cause serious health problems for people, including liver damage, cancer, and organ failure.
Fisher’s company, the company that owns the world’s largest commercial fish processing plant, operates the vast majority of fish processing plants worldwide.
Fisher and its affiliates are the largest employer of fish therapists in the United States, according the AP’s analysis.
The Associated Press reviewed records of all fish therapy contracts between 2007 and 2016, including those from Fishers affiliates and companies with at least five workers.
Some of the contracts are between one or two companies.
The AP’s review included contracts for fish therapy services provided to Fishers employees, and for fish processing from companies owned by other Fishers subsidiaries.
Fish therapists perform a variety of tasks, including administering fish to feed the workers and cleaning and disinfecting their tanks and ponds.
Some fish therapists perform the cleaning and sterilization by hand.
The work is done by cleaning fish, removing dead animals, disposing of waste, and performing other tasks.
Fishers, which operates a plant in Louisiana that makes nearly a million pounds of seafood per day, pays its fish therapists to do the tasks.
The company said it did not pay its fish therapy workers to perform fish therapy for its own customers.
However, the AP found that Fishers paid its workers to do fish therapy to make a profit.
The seafood industry is worth about $100 billion.
The companies that operate fish processing facilities, including Fishers and its subsidiaries, have paid their fish therapists about $20 million per year since 2007, according a 2014 analysis of the AP by the Center for Responsive Politics, a nonprofit research group.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that in the U.S. alone, about 30 million fish are harvested annually.
The trade group Seafood Industry Association said that the number of fish processors in the industry was $200 billion in 2016, with about $40 million in profit.
Some companies, including McDonald’s, have filed for bankruptcy protection in recent years.
The Food and Drug Administration has not approved the use of the fish therapy treatment.
But it has allowed some companies to use it to treat human illnesses.
In one instance, a fish therapist in California was charged in 2016 with failing to provide sufficient anesthesia for an employee with a respiratory illness.
The worker was taken to a hospital and died.
The agency said in a statement that the agency would not approve a use of fish treatment for anesthesia in patients who have “a known history of respiratory problems.”
The agency also said that it was not aware of any other case of a worker who died after using the treatment.
The FDA has not determined how much money the Fish and Wildlife Service paid Fishers to perform the fish-treating services.
A spokeswoman for the agency said the agency does not comment on pending litigation.
A representative for Fishers said in an email that the company is “committed to providing quality seafood processing services for our customers.”
In a statement to the AP, the group said that in 2017, “the company implemented a rigorous inspection and monitoring process that included testing all the fish in our tanks and on the property to determine if there were any problems that could cause any harm to our animals.”
Fishers also said it has implemented a new “no fish, no fish” policy that requires its employees to work only from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., except on days when there is an emergency or when fish are being harvested.
A spokesperson for the company said in 2016 that it had implemented a “zero tolerance” policy, meaning the company will not allow any fish to be handled that is more than five days old.
The statement also said the company has implemented new policies to ensure the safety of its workers and its employees.
It also said Fishers is “a leader in marine environmental conservation, and all of our employees are part of our Marine Stewardship Program, which is overseen by a professional team of marine scientists.”
The company has also made several other changes to its practices, including using more certified facilities in the Louisiana and Mississippi waters, according [email protected] and [email protected], on Twitter at AP Fish and Fisheries
