Farmed Salmon Have More Contaminants Than Wild Ones, Study Finds. A new study of fillets from 700 salmon, wild and farmed, finds that the farmed fish consistently have more PCB’s and other contaminants. By Gina Kolata. [New York Times: Science]
Once again, the most suprising thing about this story is that people are suprised about it at all. Not so surprising is that the various quoted experts talk about the wisdom of restricting salmon consumption, the risks of eating other things, but not about the choice of wild salmon. Also not discussed, the intentional pollutants introduced into farmed fish: antibiotics, dyes, etc.
Basic problem: if you want clean fish, you need clean water. Sorry, folks, that’s just how it is.
