Why I Am Picky About Fish

I need to know where the fish we eat comes from. If farmed, I won't buy. If unidentifiable as the species it's purported to be, forget it. I will eat wild caught, fresh or freshly frozen, known types of fish.

Fish industry has become very corrupted. Fish are labeled as something other than what they are. Unless you see a whole fish, or something very distinctive (such as a cut of salmon), you can't be sure it's actually the fish it says it is in the store. Deception runs high in the industry. Trust your source. It's also likely that many restaurants don't serve you the fish they say it is on the menu (it saves them money to put sauce on a lower grade of fish). Many restaurants and stores are also given fish labeled as something it's not, so other places may not know that the fish isn't right.

I am fortunate that my husband is a fisherman, so he brings home fresh catch and knows what they are so we label them in the freezer. He's not able to get the salmon, so that we have to buy.

When buying salmon, I look for wild caught, Pacific Ocean fish (Alaskan), or Norwegian if available. Atlantic salmon is largely farmed.

Many Atlantic fish are likely farmed. The problems with farmed fish is that they are kept in crowded pools, are fed an unnatural diet (often GMO soy and corn), are living in their own wastewater, etc. Farmed fish doesn't have the same nutrition as wild fish. They are likely teeming with sickness or infection, being out of a natural environment and eating unnatural diet, living in its own and other fish' feces.

There is growing concern for the state of our waters all over earth - from pollution and trash, to Fukushima radiation, to oil spills, to toxic waste - we try to be careful of those areas and fish from them. Bottom feeders, like flounder (though very good tender fish), may be picking up more garbage from the bottoms of the waters.

Mercury levels are also a concern. Fish that are typically high in mercury levels include bluefish, grouper, shark, swordfish, mackerel, martin, orange roughy, seabass, tilefish, and tuna. Eat them more sparingly. I also avoid tilapia - it has become a trash fish (nutritionally inferior, due to bad farming practices), and highly deceptively labeled. As it's likely farmed, I don't buy or eat it, either.

Be wary of fish and their source. You will get more health benefits from real, naturally grown and caught, fish.
