The guide for the eagle raft float on the Tsirku River in Alaska urged our group of adventurers to avoid eating farm raised salmon. I have only eaten wild salmon for the last several years because wild salmon is far superior in flavor and texture compared to farm raised salmon.
Our guide stressed the health reasons for favoring wild salmon. Farm raised salmon can contain toxins and carcinogens. It also contains more fat & calories and less Omega-3 fats than the wild salmon varieties. The Pure Salmon Campaign provides additional information on the relative benefits of wild salmon.
