The Fish Site logoFarmed salmon is rich in fat, but fillets of farmed salmon contain less marine omega-3 than previously, because a large fraction of the fish oil in the feed has been replaced by plant oil.

The most popular on air news magazine in North America, 60 Minuteson CBS with an average of 11.6 million viewers a week, will air a segment on salmon farming this Sunday at 7 p.m. PST.

Special correspondent Dr. Sanjay Guptaand a 60 Minutescrew were in Campbell River in October 2013 to film local salmon farmers for the program.

So the audience is huge and so too could be the repercussions — good and bad — for the salmon farming industry. About 70 per cent of all farm-raised salmon is shipped to the United States, a huge potential for a food producer that says it employs 6,000 direct and indirect jobs in B.C.

Ian Robertsof Marine Harvest represented the industry and was interviewed at length by Dr. Gupta on a farm site near Campbell River.  Read more … usa online casinos illegal

On the 21 October 2013, Norwegian companies Futurama and AquaOptima signed an agreement with Lim Shrimp Organization to create ‘Aquapolis’, the world’s first land based fully intergrated salmon and cod farming facility in Hainan, China. Lucy Towers, TheFishSite Editor reports.

The aquaculture complex will cover the production of cod and salmon from egg to market size in a demonstration farm and smaller grow-out units will be run and managed by individual farmers.

The farming system will be an indoor temperature controlled recirculating aquaculture system (RAS), with multiple stack in one building, thus increasing the productivity and shortening the length of culture, Djames Lim, CEO of Lim Shrimp Organization, told TheFishSite.  Read more …

Read a story about salmon, and the odds are good that, somewhere, it’ll tell you that wild salmon tastes better than farmed. But does it? We decided to find out in a blind tasting, and assembled a panel that included noted Washington seafood chefs and a seafood wholesaler.

The fish swam the gamut. We had wild king from Washington, frozen farmed from Costco, and eight in between, including Verlasso farmed salmon from Chile, which is the first open-pen farmed salmon to get a Seafood Watch “buy” recommendation. The tasters came from the Food section and the local seafood scene.  Read more …
