Lessons Learned from Farmed Salmon
A consumer might think that farmed salmon would contain fewer toxins than sea or lake fish, since farmed fish live in a more controlled environment. But, at least in the case of salmon, the opposite is true. Researchers analyzed 2 metric tons of farmed salmon from major salmon-farming sites around the world for organochlorine contaminants and found that the levels of these toxic compounds are significantly higher in farmed than wild salmon.20 Scientists suspect that this concentration of toxins is caused by the practice of feeding these fish large volumes of contaminated fish remains.
