Home > Why Wild Caught?

From both a nutritional and environmental impact perspective, wild-caught fish are far superior to their farmed counterparts:

  • Despite being much fattier, farmed fish provide far less usable beneficial omega-3 fatty acids than wild fish because they are fed grain, instead of their natural diets.
  • Due to the feedlot conditions of aquafarming, farm-raised fish are doused with antibiotics and exposed to more concentrated pesticides than their wild kin. Farmed salmon, in addition, are given a salmon-colored dye in their feed, without which their flesh would be an unappetizing grey color.
  • Aquafarming also raises a number of environmental concerns, the most important of which may be its negative impact on wild salmon. It has now been established that sea lice from farms kill up to 95% of juvenile wild salmon that migrate past them.(Krkosek M, Lewis MA. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A.)
