Secrets of the Superhuman Food Pyramid: Benefits of Wild Salmon, Trout, Tilapia or Flounder

Salmon and tilapia are extensively farmed. Trout and flounder have more or less escaped this fate mostly because they’re also often used for recreational fishing. Wild varieties of these fish are recommended because they are the ones least likely to be contaminated by industrial and household wastes that commonly pollute fresh and sea waters.

Dioxins, short for polychlorinated dibenzodioxins, are one of the more frequently identified. PCBs or polychlorinated biphenyl compounds are another. Both have been found to be high in farmed salmon. The presence of such pollutants in fish is certainly unfortunate as there are few other types of food that can present such an excellent protein profile. So to fully take advantage of the nutrition these types of fish offer, make sure you eat those that were caught in the wild rather than raised in a commercial fish farm.
