MONTEREY BAY AQUARIUM SEAFOOD WATCH PROGRAM RECOMMENDS B.C. FARM-RAISED ATLANTIC SALMON AS A “GOOD ALTERNATIVE’
The Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program now recommends Atlantic salmon raised in British Columbia as a “good alternative”. Seafood Watch has indicated that this improved rating is due to an increase in independent, transparent, peer reviewed data on the subject of disease transfer between farmed Atlantic salmon and wild salmon populations in British Columbia. There were also improvements to the effluent, habitat, escapes and introduced species criteria.
