Is all fish created equal? Not at all. When I think of fish, I think of a healthy, omega-3 packed luxury that is a special treat. I imagine a dedicated fisherman in the depths of scenic Alaska hand-catching my dinner and bringing his daily haul to the local market. In a perfect world, that would be the process. This is not a perfect world. I’m realizing that more every day as our food supply continues to be tampered with.
- Salmon gets its natural pink color from krill, which eats red algae.
- Farm-raised salmon is fed food-pellets that have artificial, chemical color additives. Without these fake food pellets, that “fresh atlantic salmon” would be GREY.
- Salmon eggs and sperm are extracted in a lab, then artificially inseminated to create new fish. No natural mating or diversity involved. Bio-engineered birth.
- Fish eggs are then incubated in the lab.
- Once the babies are born, they are directly transferred to controlled and man-made environments with freshwater instead of the natural salt-water fish thrive in.
- Fish are then V A C C I N A T E D. You read right. Vaccinated against “infectious diseases” before they enter a circular pen (pictures above) with thousands of other fish which are not meant to live in such tight quarters.
- All ten thousand+ fish are “fattened up” on an artificially concentrated high fat diet of ground up fish, fish oil, and GRAINS. When would fish ever naturally be exposed to grains? How can they digest them? P.s. this grain feed is highly likely to contain GMO’s.
