Should We Eat Farmed Fish?

I received an email asking me my thoughts on farmed fish.

Don’t buy it.

It’s disgusting when you think about it. Thousands of fish, penned together in underwater cages, so close that they rarely are not in contact with at least one other fish. Please don’t think these fish are swimming unmolested in some huge aquaculture cage. They are crushed together and swimming in a murky swamp of antibiotics, hormones, pesticides and their own excrement.

The health hazards haven’t been document yet, but it doesn’t mean it isn’t a hazard.

Also 70% of all farmed fish comes fromChinaso you can only imagine what’s in that stew. I’ve asked ten fish market owners if they eat farmed fish. All ten said no.

One said- “Are you kidding me? Have you ever been to a fish farm?”

Free swimming fish, in ocean, lakes, river and streams, while not mashed together as if already in a can, have their own problems. The waters are so polluted with mercury and other toxins that free swimming fish are also contaminated. I asked a Montauk fisherman if he eats any of his catch. He said yes, but won’t serve it to his kids.

We are also in the dawn of the era of genetically engineered fish. Tilapia is among the breeds that have been modified to be created in a lab. One look at the almost identical shapes and sizes of all tilapia fillets at your supermarket should confirm that genetically engineered fish is probably being sold to us.

What to do?

Decide for yourself if it’s worth it. There are tradeoffs in life and an uncontaminated fish is truly a super food. Weigh the pros and cons. Sorry, that’s the best I can do one this one.

I eat fish for dinner once a week on Fridays. Branzino, Shrimp, Octopus. I eat sardines out of the can for lunch once week as well (wild caught fromMediterranean). I also take one tablespoon a day of purified Cod Liver Oil (Just like our grandmothers said to)

 It ain’t easy being a fish these days.
