shelia"You wouldn't believe what many of the farmed fish are fed! "

I'll bite. What are the farmed fish fed!

So you'll take the bait! ;-)

There are very high levels of PCBs -- cancer-causing levels. This goes for both fresh and canned. Much of their feed is contaminated, whether it's fish feed or pesticide-laced vegetables that are more recently replacing the harder-to-find fish feed. The fish are also kept in tightly restricted areas in which feces etc build up and contaminate the water they live in. Then there are the food colorants--I forget the specific nature, have to check that--for salmon, for instance, to make the flesh look more pink.

Careful studies have been done. One had been published by the journal Science in 2003 or 2004.

This will give you some idea.
