    Exclamation Wild caught Salmon and farm raised Salmon

    I usually eat farm raised salmon but last night I ate wild caught salmon and I felt like a was really in a deep sleep I even had a dream a good dream. Most of the time I find it hard to get a good night's sleep. Can anyone in here tell me the difference between farm raised and salmon caught in the wild.
    Thanksconfused:

    Wild salmon is always the better option over farm raised salmon. Wild salmon has all the beneficial omega 3's b/c they feed from the ocean. Omega 3's help with brain function as well as many other health benefits. It seems pointless to eat farm raised salmon since their diet is not from their natural habitat. Also, the orange/red color has to be added to farm raised salmon so that they can simulate the natural color of ocean salmon.

    It' super hard to find wild salmon, I found some at Trader Joes and boy was it expensive. Perhaps well worth it however.

    Do you live anywhere near a Whole Foods? They have it for sure.

    Thanks guys for the ideas, I only have a Trader Joe's nearby and it is expensive but I imagine it is expensive everywhere?

    Walmart, ugh no, that chain is ruining the country IMHO so I won't shop there. Don't have one very close even if I would.

    Re: Wild caught Salmon and farm raised Salmon

    I've been eating farm raised Salmon for years but not any more. I read an article about farm raised and it was disturbing. If they didn't add the coloring it would be grayish (YUK). In our neighborhood (poor to middle class) its all you find at $5.99 lb. A local supermaket stopped selling Wild salmon since no one would buy it at $14.99 lb. I don't think the locals here understand what they're purchasing for $5.99. I certainly wouldn't order it at any of our local restaurants knowing that it's most likely the one that's farm raised. One thing that I did learn from the article is the importance of Krill Oil which I'm now using every day. This is one very powerful antioxidant with no fishy after taste and far more potent than fish oil.

    I agree to stay away from farm salmon, I heared that they add hormones to make them grow faster...................I eat wild salmon twice a week........

    Farm-raised fish YUCK WILD fish YUM!!! You can definitely taste the difference. ANY farm-rasied fish has that FISHY smell and ANY wild caught fish doesn't. Just take the time to notice it next time---you'll be shocked.

    The going rate for WILD Caught Salmon is about 13.99 to 21.99 a pound----researching 4 local stores here in my area ranging from Kroger, Randall's, Central Market and Whole Foods.

    If I can't buy WILD Caught salmon (due to off seasons), I eat it from the can----just read the label in fine print or go to the company's website---they will tell you if their salmon is wild caught or farm riased. I like Bumblee Bee the best. Even their Tuna in the packages is wild caught from Thialand

    Well,

    If you look at the EFA's in wild salmon you will find that veggie fed hormone free beef has more EFA's than wild salmon.

    Not to devalue eating wild fish, I love it too, but if I can't afford or can't find good wild fish I will often eat the much less expensive veggie fed hormone free beef.

    I agree though, if you are going to eat meat it is important that it comes from a good place. No hormones/veggie fed/wild/etc is really important.

    Ciao,
