Salmon, especially wild kings, was among my most favorite source of protein. I don't eat it any more in any form...cooked, smoked, canned, etc.. The consensus used to be that because of its omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D, it was about as perfect a protein source as could be found. Now, even the wild king population has to be looked at with a certain degree of skepticism and suspicion. Why?
Welcome to the real questions I have not only about the safety of eating salmon but also the future of the species; (i) genetic modification/pollution, (ii) wild fish stock pound-to-pound ratio, (iii) antibiotics, (iv) parasites, (v) salmon leukemia virus, (vi) vaccines and (vii) pesticides (really ugly ones). Adding to the discussion of each of these will come a roll-out of the companies, their executives and governmental bureaucrats who have turned a blind eye towards these problems or flat out lied about their impact not only on the salmon species.
