Simple Sustainability

Did you know?

Almost all salmon test for high levels of various industrial toxins (dioxin and PCBs, if we want to be technical). Salmon are an unusually fatty species of fish, and the poisons build up in their fat with time, providing dangerous reservoirs for people who eat fish.

Farmed salmon are particularly at risk, as the feed contains high levels of these toxins.
