I watched a documentary the other day about farmed Salmon in Norway.
Salmon has become popular in Sweden lately.
A lot of people are choosing salmon instead of other animal products because they think there making a better choice ethically.
Basically salmon and most farmed fish are carnivorous so you need more than twice the amount of wild fish for one part farmed fish. The outfishing of plant eating fish has led to marine eco systems collapsing.
I try to eat mostly vegan and vegetarian food but fish is the one animal product I really love.
Maybe because Im half japanese.
Just so you know there are different lists online where you can check which fish is ocean friendly.
I think Its very hard to feel any sense of urgency when your in the supermarket
