farmed salmon

farmed salmon

An oily fish produced in a restricted space, factory-like setting. Farmed salmon may have multiple environmental toxins (including PCBs); farmed salmon often harbour sea lice and suffer from soft-flesh syndrome, infectious salmon anaemia and furunculosis. The meat is often artificially dyed (with canthaxanthin) to make it look more like wild salmon.
