Salmon sampled in a survey was found to be mislabelled 43 percent of the time, according to a new study out Wednesday. That means many consumers paying extra for local, wild-caught fish are still getting farm-raised.

Haven't had any seafood in yrs...including salmon. From other articles I've seen the dishonesty of fish sellers, readers, vendors goes across the board to all fish. Thanx Little.

The price of salmon is way over my budget, so I don't get to eat it. Salmon in Australia is mostly raised in the clean waters of Tasmania, but of course it's still farm-raised.

Sad that these stores have to continue to mislead and rip off consumers. Wonder what they feed their family members??? Thanks Little

The only salmon I would look for are the ones swimming in rivers who are alive and healthy and will stay that way.

When our local fish were eaten and sold locally the price was reasonable, now with a global market it can be shipped to people in foreign lands that do have money so will pay higher prices for it. Fish therefore will not be sold for a lower price nearby, drives prices up everywhere.

This Global market/economy sucks.

For some it may make sense (mollusks?) but for salmon who swim thousands of miles to reproduce, it seems so stressing for them being denied their instinct.

If people knew how many chemicals and artificial growth hormones are in 'farmed' /frankenfish salmon, they'd not even consider buying. Again, the government is poisoning us - this time with fake food and fake information... Read up on what is fed to these fish. And remember, it only takes one to escape and breed its fake genes with a genuine wild salmon to contaminate any spawn from then on... Bye Bye real fish...there's no going back ever...gone is gone.

These salmon are killing the REAL salmon. If you don't know why, you are ethically REQUIRED to study up on the problematic practice of salmon farming and other fish farming.

You do NOT NEED to eat salmon.
I only ate salmon when I was in salmon country, EVER.
Salmon cut into tiny remnants of its former populations _ only a hundred or so years ago - that's when the major damming began, and the fishing industry began ramping up its overfishing technologies - is not prolific enough in nature to feed monstorus humanity.

All the marketing hype about salmon has caused the end of any ethical thinking whatsoever in humans who willingly subject themselves to it.

I happen to live where salmon only 150 years aog fed the largest bears in the continental US wher they fed the birds and their nitrogen markedly increased the growth of the Pacifi Northwest and Redwood trees.
Salmon once swam their way into Idaho and the Rockies.
Until YOU give them their habitat , their lives back, do NOT let a morsel fo salmon past your lips - if you do so, you are a part of the unhealthy hell that is sending salmon to extinction from the central Sierras to Kamchatka.

This country is getting daily dumbed down from blind government: with food, it's now garbage in, garbage out. .. they don't know that they don't know, this ad excuse for govt needs tearing down and a total rebuilt healthy foundation.
