Many of us are incorporating salmon into our diets as a high-protein addition for a healthier lifestyle. But not all salmon fillets are the same, since many varieties can contain high levels of chemicals and contaminants. Wild-caught Alaskan salmon have been found by scientists to be high in heart-healthy omega-3s and low in contaminants, and they are caught sustainably through tough Alaskan regulations and government monitoring of the fishing industry. Farm salmon, on the other hand, are "grown" in tightly packed pools where diseases are prevalent, so they are often fed high amounts of antibiotics.
