Side Effects of Eating Farmed Salmon

"Salmon is rich in high-quality protein, is an excellent source of B vitamins, and is quite high in potassium."

1. Serious boost in protein

Because of those omega-3 fatty acids, the healthy unsaturated fats can help reduce inflammation in your body

2. It can reduce inflammation and your risk of disease

"Farmed salmon is an excellent source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids,Omega-3 fatty acids provide benefits for heart and brain health.Omega-3s may also reduce the risk of depression

Salmon is a heart-healthy food, a rich source of omega-3, proteins, low in saturated fats and calories," says Edie Reads, RD and chief editor at healthadvise.org.

3. You may consume some contaminants

However, farmed salmon is mostly reared in crowded sea cages and pens. Such controlled conditions are common with toxins, mostly polychlorinated biphenyls whose accumulation in the body is cancerous.

The difference in sustainable and unsustainable farmed salmon practices is the key differentiator here. It all circles back again to the feed of the fish,

4. few chemicals as well

"Unsustainable farming practices also tend to cause more accumulation of toxins in farmed fish," says Reads."For instance, to attain its pink color, most farmers mix their feeds with other chemicals

Wild salmon is known for feeding on all kinds of wild fish like crustaceans, shrimp, and krill. These smaller fish are full of the antioxidant, which gives the salmon that rich pink color naturally.

 it's important to note the differences between farmed salmon and wild salmon. Farmed salmon tend to be fattier because they aren't as active of a fish

5. You may consume more fat

compared to a wild-caught salmon.If a farmed salmon is fed an unnatural diet and isn't exercising as much, it may have a build-up of omega-6 fatty acids, which is fat you should consume in moderation

wild salmon is produced and grows in a tank, then released into the wild to consume whatever natural resources there is within the natural habitat they are in

6. You'll consume fewer microplastics

While there is a myriad of benefits of eating wild salmon in its natural habitat—particularly for that astaxanthin antioxidant —there is still a risk on the contaminants that these fish can consume.

6. consume fewer microplastics

Unless the feed for the farmed salmon contains traces of it, there's a chance you won't be consuming as many microplastics when eating farmed salmon.
