The seafood industry is the epicenter of one of the most contentious debates in the U.S. politics.
It’s also the source of one the most profitable.
And it’s a hotly contested issue that is likely to play a central role in the 2016 election.
The king seafood industry — and the fish industry in general — is a $5 trillion business in the United States, and one that can generate billions in annual revenue.
For decades, the industry has thrived, with the highest growth rates in the country.
But in the last decade, the fish-and-chips industry has grown by leaps and bounds, while kingfish has been losing ground.
A key factor in that is the growth of the online market for kingfish, and the increasing sophistication of its processing.
Kingfish are also more difficult to catch, meaning that fewer fish can be bought and sold on the black market.
But it’s also a source of economic growth for Kingfish Farms, a subsidiary of the world’s largest seafood processor, Kingfish Seafoods, based in Sarasota, Florida.
The company recently expanded to a larger, new facility, and it has become a hotbed of debate over what’s legal and illegal.
Some people in the seafood industry say that Kingfish has grown too fast, while others are convinced that King Fish is making too much money off of the fish that is being harvested by the company.
King Fish’s sales in 2015 were $7.2 billion, according to data from the U-M Fishery Institute.
That’s more than the industry’s entire annual revenue in 2014, which was $5.9 billion.
King Farms was founded in 2012, and in 2012 it made a fortune selling kingfish to restaurants, including sushi restaurants in Japan and New York.
KingFish is now the largest shrimp and kingfish processor in the world, and its market share has risen from less than 5 percent in 2008 to nearly 30 percent now.
But Kingfish’s growth has also coincided with a steady increase in the number of people caught with the fish.
And, according the U, Fish & Seafood Institute, the number caught has increased by nearly 40 percent from 2004 to 2015, from more than 9 million pounds to more than 11 million pounds.
“The kingfish industry is one of those things that is, for whatever reason, on the rise,” said Gary Johnson, executive director of the U of M Fishery, which advocates for the welfare of marine animals.
Johnson and other experts have criticized the company for not controlling its processing of kingfish in a way that would make it more economically sustainable.
In fact, Johnson said, KingFish’s business model relies heavily on shrimp, so many shrimp farms that supply Kingfish have struggled to find new shrimp to grow.
“There’s a lot of shrimp farms in the Southeast that are in trouble,” he said.
“I’m not saying they’re not in trouble.
I’m just saying that a lot are struggling.”
The industry is also facing a major health crisis.
Kingfisher Farms estimates that it lost nearly 1.7 million pounds of kingfisher in 2015, more than half of it to disease.
KingFisher also says that its production of kingfin has declined by 20 percent since 2008, partly because of the introduction of antibiotics.
That has meant that the fish are becoming more susceptible to illnesses that include scourings, septicemia, pneumonia and liver failure.
The industry, however, maintains that the decline in kingfishing has not been enough to keep the industry from shrinking.
“It’s a business that’s very sustainable, and I don’t think it’s the way to go for the economy,” said Paul Smith, a professor of environmental management at Michigan State University.
“This industry is in a very delicate spot.
If you get into a situation where it’s not sustainable, it’s very hard to sustain.”
But in 2016, some lawmakers have raised questions about whether Kingfish is making money off the kingfish it sells.
King’s annual sales of $8.5 billion last year have led to the company’s first-quarter profits falling nearly 10 percent from 2014.
The stock has lost about half its value since the beginning of the year, but Johnson said that was a temporary setback.
“What we’re seeing is a lot more of this stock going up, and this stock has gone up 10 to 15 percent year over year,” he added.
But the stocks decline is not enough to cause concern about the company, Johnson added.
“We’re not going to get into that conversation of whether the stock is a stock, or whether it’s an investment or a hedge, because the stock doesn’t pay off in any way,” he explained.
King, though, continues to sell the shrimp it processes.
It has a net loss of more than $3 million for 2015.
The fish is also growing by leaps-and.
