Always wild. And almost always from Trader Joe's, frozen hard as a brick. Skin on. I love the stuff.

You did not reference "Keta" Salmon. Is his a variance of the other species? I saw cans of it at the 99 cent store here in San Diego,CA. I don't buy food made or imported from China, which is what 99 cent stores mainly sell. But; These cans of Keta were from another country, Norway I believe.

Always wild. It defeats the purpose of eating fish for health purposes to eat farmed. There's also the humanitarian point of view that makes it more ethical to eat wild caught. (Yes, I know we're still eating them, but I assume an animal that is happier during their life will be healthier for me after they die)

I only buy wild salmon because it is healthier. Sometimes it is hard to find so when I see it I buy it.

after discovering some shocking documentaries about farmed salmon, we decided not to consume salmon at all anymore !
however, we are trying to find the best canned wild salmon which is garanteed 'authentic' wild, so non-farmed...
difficult search, but hopefully we will succeed thanks to the 'eatingwell' blogs, so thank you for sharing thoughts and ideas !
we keep posted how we are progressing overhere in Belgium, since all supermarkets are let's say 'involved in the conspiracy' to intoxicate the population...

I think it's somewhat confusing, cause the PBS's in the farmed salmon are quite low but then again I'm not so sure! I would rather buy wild salmon for health reasons but on the other hand wild is supposedly firmer in the flesh! I do like a more tender flesh! I would like to see clearer signs of where the fish comes from at fish grocer!

Great article, thanks! (I look for wild; whether canned, pouched or 'fresh')
