    From the below linked article:

    #2: ATLANTIC SALMON (Both Wild-caught and Farmed)
    Why It's Bad: It's actually illegal to capture wild Atlantic salmon because the fish stocks are so low, and they're low, in part, because of farmed salmon. Salmon farming is very polluting: Thousands of fish are crammed into pens, which leads to the growth of diseases and parasites that require antibiotics and pesticides. Often, the fish escape and compete with native fish for food, leading to declines in native populations.

    Adding to our salmon woes, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is moving forward with approving genetically engineered salmon to be sold, unlabeled, to unsuspecting seafood lovers. That salmon would be farmed off the coast of Panama, and it's unclear how it would be labeled. Currently, all fish labeled "Atlantic salmon" come from fish farms. And, as you know if you follow me on Twitter, they're fed pellets that contain pink dye—that's how they get their color. Gross!


    Eat This Instead: Opt for Wild Alaskan salmon.

    I love seafood but I don't like salmon at all. I leave them and squid alone.

    Guess what, millions of wild salmon die after spawning. Which government agency do we see about that?.

    We should keep government out of it and let industries do what they need to do. If the people who use a companies products start dying, then people will stop buying the product. Republicans see that as "self regulating".

    Republicans say let and informed public decide vs regulations.
    But they always are against country of origin and such types of labelling laws that inform the public so they can make an informed decision.

    We don't need seafood in our diets.
    It's marketing, folks. Pure and simple.
