boatdrinks I agree that those are problems but I think we need to also remember that farmed seafood is going to be the wave of the future if we're going to avoid wiping out all edible fish from commercial fishing (stripers come to mind). I'd be hesitant to say farmed salmon is bad more that their practices are bad.

MartyG Wow. I watched the video and was shocked. I'd read several years ago about the farms in the North Atlantic in Norway and Sweden. All I remembered was that the fish ended up living in water with a high concentration of their own droppings and that the bland food they were fed resulted in bland tasting fish.

This issue is right up there with gold mines destroying rivers.

We should be disgusted with these businesses and the government officials they buy out, but even more so we should be disgusted with ourselves for putting it in our mouths and swallowing it, because if we stop doing that the problem would be solved in one or two accounting cycles. .02

The only farmed salmon I eat is Ducktrap Smoked Salmon trim ( also the only salmon I eat) I do not buy any farmed fish otherwise.
