China flexes economic muscle with ban on Taiwanese grouper

The fish is 4th agricultural product to be sanctioned by Beijing since last year

China's General Administration of Customs on Friday announced the suspension from Monday, citing the discovery of malachite green -- a banned chemical used in aquaculture -- being detected in samples.
