Salmon Question

Here in New England we don't see fresh wild salmon very often usually once or twice a year. I have been avoiding the farm raised stuff, for obvious reason, but sometimes I really crave a nice slab of grilled salmon.

So, if you had the choice between no salmon or farm raised salmon which would you chose?

Farm raised if you have a craving.

This is a lot like the fat side up/down, the foil/no foil controversy. And I am very biased on this issue as you might of guessed from by signature. My wife's family commercial fishes wild fish. My oldest son paid his way through college commercial fishing wild salmon. We have laws prohibiting fish farming for fear the inevitable escapement will dilute our wild stock's gene pool.

Having said all that, eat what you like. AND you are always going to see fresh wild salmon only once or twice a year because their life cycle only brings them in once a year. A large part of the popularity of farmed fish is the year round availability of fresh fish.

I'm luck to live in the state that harvests more seafood than any other. We eat what's in season for the most part.

Uncle Al if you're cravin' a slab of fresh salmon, grab a farmed fish and enjoy.

There is no comparison in the flavor of the two if you can get good fish.
Wild caught's flavor is 100x better. What ever you do.... don't ruin the flavor of it by brinning it.

You won't be disappointed with a Copper River red.
