of all 'Atlantic' salmon – doesn't unfortunately refer to geographic locale,
but rather the species 'Salmo salar' – is farmed and do not come from the
cold ocean waters of the North Atlantic. Pacific salmon also are inland
This farmed fish has an insipid-pallor – but, this has been 'fixed' with artificial coloring from Swiss giant Hoffman La Roche's synthetic carathaxanthin and astaxanthin under the name Carophyll® Pink obtained from petrochemicals and/or coal tars. Sick wild fish are in nature's balance, picked off by predators. Sick farmed fish are coddled but pass on pathogens to wild fish on the migration routes. Salmon lice, which thrive in the fin to fin conditions of fish farms, were never seen until these fish farms came along. Big fish survive lice, but the little growing ones are fated because of their small body mass.
Comprised from an article in-Discover Magazine, September 2002:-Along Mexico's Pacific coast declines in wild ocean fish adjacent to fish farms may be due to pipes pumping out shtimp feces, excess shrimp food and antibiotics into the ocean, while intake pipes pull in shrimp larvae robbing fisherman of future catches. Excrement from shrimp and other cultivated species, including salmon, carp, tilapia (a tropical African fish introduced in Mexico and elsewhere), and catfish, can sully water next to the fish farms, driving away wild fish and other sea creatures. Feces rich in nitrogen trigger the growth of algae which clutter and choke bodies of water. This process of contamination is called eutrophication. The effluent (liquid waste outflow) releases pests and diseases (sea lice and viruses) that proliferate in these close packed conditions. Two lethal viruses, infectious hypodermal and hematopoietic necrosis virus and Taura syndrome virus have been documented now in the wild shrimp populations, suggesting the diseases can jump from farms to the wild.

Fish are no longer 'in the wild' to feed upon crustaceans, plankton, and algae, which naturally impart their beautiful appetizing colors.
Farmed salmon and farmed Rainbow Trout, deprived of their natural food are forced by lack of choice to ingest 'food' pellets. They then are later dyed with synthetics to make their now poor coloring look as appetizing as real fish food.
The coloring agent is also fed to chickens to make their skin and flesh an acceptable yellow. Couple this with the tranquilizers given to farmed.(not free range farm).chickens, so they don't go nuts while they are exposed to fluorescent lights twice as long as normally would occur during a natural day/night cycle; and couple that with the antibiotics in their 'food pellets' so they don't transmit disease being so cramped together, and you're eating a whole concoction of crap – that is, once they can't lay eggs anymore and therefore are ready for slaughter and delivery to your favorite supermarket to feed to your family, becoming part of what constitutes your very living cells.
Unlike deceitful practices being used to hide the use of the synthetic coloring agents carathaxanthin and astaxanthin from consumers.(no labels occur for consumer information), Ocean Spray at least openly, honestly and in a straightforward clear manner labels the use of synthetic carathaxanthin in its Pink Grapefruit and Mega Melon products.
Regarding salmon however, labeling regulations in place are seldom followed down to the consumer level.(just ask at your fish counter about coloring agents added to salmon), because infractions are seldom noted by the authorities, and labeling regulations rarely enforced. And why should you even have to ask? You wouldn't, unless you knew something was amiss. So what you have been getting is not what you assumed you were receiving. This is pure deceit!
'Alaska' or 'wild' salmon can be trusted, and are given high marks. But deceitful labels like 'imported' and 'caught in the wild' used for farmed salmon are concealing. Most labels, just say salmon. perhaps hoping you won't detect a difference.
'Caught in the wild' refers to most farmed salmon that are caught in the cold ocean – initially. And 'imported' according to the dictionary means 'brought or carried in from an outside source'; that is, outside the local supermarket's fish counter – imported from the fish farm.
Farmed fish are out of balance in Omega acids, so necessary for health. The modern diet lacks Omega-3 acids, yet has too much Omega-6 fatty acids. Farmed fish has way too much Omega-6 as compared to Omega-3 fatty acids.
And farmed fish are far less flavorful and mushy when compared to salmon in the wild.
Alaskan salmon is ocean caught by independent fisherman in small boats, as compared to large trawlers or factory ships.
The ratio of isomers in the flesh of both Atlantic and Pacific salmon are significantly different from salmon raised in an aquaculture (fish farm) environment having been dyed with the synthetic astaxanthin.
December 11, 1999 Lancet reported a woman with milk allergies who ate farm salmon with its synthetic colorings, who developed itchy ears, facial swelling, nausea, and stomach pain. ... Comprised from the article 'Is Something Fishy Going On?', The World And I, May, 2000.
