Salmon Warning: Don't Eat Farmed Fish

In 2007, according to the environmental group Oceana Chile who obtained the statistics from the Chilean government, Chile, then the largest supplier of farmed salmon to the U.S., used more than 385,000 kilograms of antibiotics in its salmon farms. At least four of those antibiotics are not included on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Approved Drugs list. Suggestion is to stay away from farmed fish. Instead, buy the wild Alaskan salmon currently in season. It is sustainably fished and tastes so much better than the farmed. Or simply stick with wild fish.
