I raise Rainbow Trout for a living. How contradictory is this article. It's a plus that the Trout are fed fishmeal but a negative for the farmed salmon. Please explain... You sound like you might just have an agenda.

I can't believe you are telling people to eat farmed fish. NOT GOOD.

AVOID all fish from the Pacific--the radiation from Fukushima has made all salmon and Alaskan - Pacific fish toxic. We find bears and fish dead form radiation poisoning all over Alaska. Farmed salmon carries antibiotics but not enough radiation to affect your cellular growth. Avoid all sushi, as it all comes from Japanese waters near Fukushima.

I avoid all Fish that are not from the United States. Fish from China, I was told they are farm raised using chicken feces and other grossly related waste.
I would like to know were to buy the Coho Salmon - I live in Pennsylvania. Thank you

I don't agree with your theory that any farmed fish is good for you. I only eat wild caught tuna, wild caught salmon, and wild caught halibut. Farmed fish swim in their own feces and are fed GMO grains, so where did you hear that it's good for you?? Also crustaceans and shellfish are bottom feeders and you should never eat them either.

So this isn't a health column, it's about what fish are "endangered". People have no idea what's in the oceans. The whole world can't find an airplane, yet they're suppose to know how many fish are in the oceans? Commercial fishing is the most heavily regulated industry in the USA. Commercial fishermen break their backs to work and catch fresh, US seafood, only to have it shipped to other countries and then America imports foreign garbage. 88-90% of all seafood consumed in the US is imported with only roughly 2% of that being inspected. Yeah, stay away from farm raised anything. Fresh, Wild caught USA seafood!

What about fresh caught flounder? We eat it at least once per week. We avoid anything that is farm grown like salmon. Although we do eat fresh caught.
