i know there has been research on this my lipid clinic told me to stay away from the farm raised salmon go for the deep water salmon or other fish because the farm raised salmon you lose alot of the omega 3. i know farm raised is cheaper but not as good for you
Great choice with salmon and fish for the heart. With salmon, though, to the best on my knowledge - farm raised salmon is depleted of the benefits that really make salmon a great health choice. Salmon from the sea is the way to go for the Omega 3 oils and other nutrients that come from life in the sea. There are limits to how much you should eat per week due to mercury in the fish. You can research this on the web.
I had a quintuple bypass 2 years ago at age 49. No more fried or buttery food for me. Plus lots of veggies and fruit. Steel-cut oats are great for breakfast and will make your cholesterol happy.
I agree, farm raised salmon isn't a good choice. I was a commercial salmon fisherman for a number of years, and have cleaned literally thousands of pounds of fresh, hook caught salmon. I'm sorry to be so graphic, but one has to feel, see and smell what fresh salmon is like. Farm raised salmon has to have food additives included in their diet or it isn't even pink. There is no comparison between farmed and wild salmon. All Atlantic salmon is farm raised.
Costco sells Sockeye salmon fillets that are wild, hook caught and at a reasonable price, that's what I buy and eat once a week. Chinook (King) salmon has the highest heart value but also the highest cost, Sockeye comes close and is much less expensive.
