you do realize that salmon would be extinct now if they didn't farmed it ? Only because of the amounts we eat of it..
they are fed fishmeal (hint. they catch sardines,which they than grind up and make fishmeal out of it and feed it to salmon..)
So it's hardly anything bad for you...

Read about farmed salmon how bad is it for you.
Farmed in small spaces in water with antibiotics to stop fish from getting sick and growth hormones.

Ok lets ban farmed salmon, let's rather eat cookies/crisps and drink coke all day long, much healthier and better for you! I agree..
I have eaten salmon caught 2 hours fresh from a river in the Scottish Highlands (poached both ways as it were.)

I have seen the salmon in the off shore pens getting fed off the hormone pellets.

I'm just wondering which this is, that's all, because I noticed quite a difference in the two from my own experience.

If it's a deal for leasing a car they don't just tell you it's a car, they tell you what type. What's wrong with asking what type of salmon?

It's 99p for half a kilo of salon fillets. I'm going to take a guess and say it's farmed.
Obviously farmed at this price. We used to buy farmed until I heard about all the antibiotics, growth hormones, etc. We now buy wild from Waitrose.

Now you are just being silly and I'm serious
.....but we eat farmed cows, pigs, chicken, sheeps that are fed off hormone pellets, not sure why the snobbery over fish? I don't even know myself even though I started it. I think it is to do with the muscles, a wild salmon leaping up waterfalls vs a farmed one wallowing about in a pen. Whereas a wild sheep vs a farmed sheep, they do about the same amount of plodding and have similar meat on them??
So sick of food snobbery. I'd totally buy GM salmon

Not really. Eating the fish that are ground up to make food for farmed salmon would be more sustainable.

Gave you a like for the joke, but seriously nothing wrong with Horse meat, plenty of people enjoy it smoked and sliced in a nice crusty bread roll for breakfast, easily the best breakfast meat.

A friend of mine works in the fish industry (PhD in biology). I asked her once if she would eat farmed salmon. The answer was no.

Enough for me.

yeah but there is not enough demand for sardines being sold at £4 a kilo... salmon sold at £4 per kg at xmas? People will fight over it .. Btw you can go to some Baltic states like Latvia and buy sardines for £0.4 a kilo..

We're talking sustainability, but, in any case, wild sardines are far better for you than farmed salmon, most of which is produced in conditions similar to battery farming. Huge use of 'medicines' to keep the fish 'healthy', protect them from sea lice etc etc. The waste mountains and desolation on the sea bed below salmon farms speaks volumes.

Where is this misinformation coming from? How exactly is a portion of farmed salmon bad for you?

I prefer not to eat diseased fish or animals for that matter. Also with antibiotics, there is a withdrawal period meaning accidental consumption will be negligible, the dose makes the poison after all. Salmon farming tends to use less antibiotics than other animals and this will likely decrease further with developments such as vaccines as shown by Norway's success. Growth hormones are illegal in the EU for use in all animals including fish.

60% of Scottish salmon producers are part of the RSPCA's Freedom Food scheme.
Bring on protein from Insects! then no more arguing right?

Alaskan?

That's farmed too. The 'Wild' bit refers to the fact it has free run of a whole lake...

The supermarkets don't sell wild salmon. Wild salmon is caught as it comes inshore to breed. Catching it means it doesn't get a chance to breed, affecting the future chances of the species. It isn't ethical for a large retailer to sell it on a large scale. Any of the top supermarkets sell enough salmon in a year to make the wild species extinct.

As for the other comments, the usual Daily Fail nonsense. There are different grades of farmed salmon, just as quality will vary from supplier to supplier with any farmed products. There are good suppliers and there are bad. Why tar them all with the same nonsense?

In general, if it's Scottish farmed salmon it's really good stuff. The quality of the fish is generally good, they're looked after reasonably well and they're parasite free. Many counties import it because of its reputation for quality. Us Brits? We just winge, because nothing good could possibly be made in this country...

On topic, can't say I'm sure about this stuff. Unless it's reduced to clear it seems way too cheap. Probably not from this country. Probably not even from the EU. Not sure it'd buy it unless I could work out where it's from - there's a reasonable reason to be wary of some farmed fish.

Frozen!

And yet another useless and nonsensical question/comment.
It's not just salmon farming... read about all food production... water sanitation...Increasing air/water/land pollution
and it will be worse if we leave the EU... however, everything will be marvelous... if we don't

Don't eat any variety of meat then if those getting antibiotics put you off.

All vegans would say that though.
