Wild farms?

A new study by the international nonprofit Oceana has discovered that up to 43% of salmon sold as “wild” is actually farm raised. Restaurants were the most deceptive, with 67% of diners being told that the farm raised salmon that they were serving was wild caught. 20% of grocery store sales were found “mislabeled”. I assume that’s like mis-remembering where the salmon came from in the first place.

According to health experts, wild salmon has less calories and half the fat. Farm raised salmon also frequently has more added chemicals and preservatives.

Farm or wild? Read the label and roll the dice.
