It’s No Contest – The Undisputed Winner: Wild Salmon (Especially Alaskan Salmon)
It is a good idea to eat fatty fish such as salmon 1–2 times per week for optimal health. This fish is delicious, loaded with beneficial nutrients and highly filling — and therefore weight-loss-friendly. The biggest concern with farmed salmon is organic pollutants like PCBs. If you try to minimize your intake of toxins, you should avoid eating salmon too frequently. Antibiotics in farmed salmon are also problematic, as they may increase the risk of antibiotic resistance in your gut. However, given its high amount of omega-3s, quality protein and beneficial nutrients, any type of salmon is still a healthy food. Still, wild salmon is generally better for your health if you can afford it.
