Farm-Raised Fish Good Or Bad
What is the difference between farm raised fish vs wild caught? Or is there even a difference? If so, what is the sustainability of farm raised fish?
For as long as I've can remember eating, fish has lengthy been touted as an amazing meal by doctors, nutritionists and professionals from round the world. Many people choose not to eat “meat” for philosophical or ethical reasons, but are completely content in their choice to consume fish. Considered that fish are harvested as many ways as farm animals, doesn't this seem a bit odd?
There’s no denying that eating fish includes many vital omega three’s which are suitable for your mind and mental health. I bet you've even heard the term ‘brain food’ because of how essential those vitamins are for mind and body. However, there is more discussion over farmed fish, mainly salmon and tilapia, with some even claiming that this method of food production could be one of the world's most toxic.
If you were to take a look at the fishing industry today, most people who have fisheries have many negative issues affecting their businesses. Things like over fishing, chemical pollutants or even genetic mutation from toxic exposures affect their bottom line of making a living. There is a documentary directed by Nicholas Daniel’s titled “Fillet-Oh-Fish” that takes a very critical look at fish farms. Without saying I agree or disagree or am biased by the movie, I would encourage everyone who chooses farm raised fish to do a bit more research on whether you find it's healthy as they claim or really just a potent “chemical cocktail of toxins”.
Unfortunately, just spending an hour or so researching for info on this podcast, I found that although aquaculture frequently promotes itself as a sustainable and a better alternative to over fishing, I found that many farms seem to be causing more issues than they might be helping in the form of toxins within our bodies in the name of efficiency.
So knowing this can we begin to discuss what are the harmful effects of eating farm raised fish and whether farm raised fish is good or bad? If so, it might be learned why farm raised fish is harmful to our health.
