Finally a treat suitable for cats and dogs! Wild Salmon vs Farm Raised Salmon - which is better? According to the Huffington Post : The first choice you should make is whether to buy wild salmon (and all Alaskan salmon is wild-caught) or farmed Atlantic salmon. In most instances, I opt for wild salmon. Why? Environmental groups such as Seafood Watch and the Environmental Defence Fund, have put nearly all farmed salmon on their “red” or “avoid” list. The reason: many farms use crowded pens where salmon are easily infected with lice, may be treated with antibiotics and can spread disease to wild fish (one reason Alaska has banned salmon farms). In addition, it can take as much as three pounds of wild fish (and fishmeal) to raise one pound of salmon. Apart from providing great Omega 3 oils, Wild Alaskan Salmon are also free of most chemicals and metals as compared to farm raised salmon. Farm raised salmon is also higher in fat content causing them to absorb more toxins found in their fishmeal. Freeze drying also allows the nutrients to be retained while keeping the same natural taste and colour of the food. Freeze drying is better than dehydration as the latter still uses heat to some degree.
