Is eating fish still good for us? Farmed Salmon from the Baltic Sea anyone! Please watch Documentary

  • https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=RYYf8cLUV5E


    If like me you thought eating Farmed Salmon was good for our health due to the omega 3 etc. There’s every chance we could be eating far more harmful toxins in farmed fish to make any health benefits worthless in the short term, never mind the longterm. I’m not going to “try” to explain. Your better of hearing it from the horses mouth (horse meat?) Oh no, not again surely? Please take the time to watch the documentary if you ever eat farmed fish and really any processed fish products that may even contain fish pulp. Your health and mind could be at risk.

  • 50mins documentary, first thoughts, toooo long but it's worth watching. The corrupt Norwegian bitch minister was quick to duck the interview and the panga also is an eye-opener, though I've never knowingly had it. Just wondering why Jamie Oliver or Hugh FW are not on the case or are we not letting this poisonous produce into the UK or are Tesco selling it already.

    Soylent Green comes to mind.

  • I've never wanted to eat farmed salmon - for one thing it tastes disgusting. I also think it's just as bad or even worse than battery chicken from an animal welfare point of view.

    I have no idea why it's allowed at all :thumbdown:

    I wondered if this was widely known about, but since no testing on fish food had taken place (officially) and it was (routine) to purchase this fish food (for feeding farmed fish) in Europe. It wouldn’t suprise me if it’s used closer to home.

    I don’t buy ready meals (fish based) but admit to having consumed a couple of coop fish pies reciently when they are in the reduced section. Just how far into the food chain this (panga) fish pulp goes is a mystery as labelling requirements are quite vague.

    My concern is really for my partner, as she eats/cooks fresh Salmon on a regular basis. It’s taken her years to convince me to even try it and she needs to flake it in rice dish before I will admit the meal she cooked was delicious 😋

  • I am waiting for Morrisons or Tesco to have whole salmon on special offer,i buy 4 fish to cut up and freeze.I'm surprised the FSA have not climbed all over this.

    I will still eat it I'm not too worried about these things when I think about some of the

    stuff I have slung down my neck,i wake up every day thinking it's a bonus.:)

  • We do RTE salmon for tesco. Two bits for £4.50, £25 a kilo! Fuck knows who buys it, luckily there are plenty of overs which removes the need to buy it!

    You can only accomplish your object in life by complete disregard of the opinions of other people.

  • Apart from the non-taste of farmed fish especially salmon I stopped eating it years ago when i got chatting to a fish farm worker who told me about all the stuff they throw at them to keep them healthy free from parasites and grow fast.

    Not what i wanted to hear.

    I rarely ever buy fish as it never ever tastes the same as the fish you catch and cook yourself the same day.

    If I do I make sure its wild not farmed (though i wouldnt put it past some supermarkets to employ some poetic licence in their labelling).

    Disappointing that its Norway doing this in such a widescale corrupt manner and since much of the 'expertise' of fish farming here comes from over there i wonder what else is lurking in our own Scottish Salmon industry.


    The fish pulp business shown in the film should be enough to put off everyone eating fish ready meals.<X

  • When we were sea fishing for more than one day at a time. The B&B wouldn’t have freezer space to store our catch. So day one the skipper would buy any catch from the lads. Last days fishing needed to be over good wrecks or we went home empty and skint. If your ever around the harbour it’s worth asking these pleasure fisherman if they have owt to sell.


    Some skippers were crafty and on the first few days they hit the good wrecks. Skipper sold the fish to local restaurants, hotels etc and made loads of money. On our last day he would take us over previously fished wrecks and it was a poor catch, Saving the rested wrecks for the next boat hires catch. We wouldn’t use that boat (skipper) again. If we had driven from the midlands down to Plymouth, hired a minibus, paid B&B, hired boat and skipper. Any Cod and Conger could cost us more than in the fishmongers. Day fishing from Whitby could fill a freezer in no time at all. Fresh line caught fish is superior and something to take advantage of.


    Next year I fancy coastal foraging. I’ve purchased some more sea fishing tackle, but Im perticularly interested in trying shellfish and seaweeds.

  • When i lived in Pembs I went out on my boat quite a bit and nearly always had seabass (my favorite),mackerel ,seatrout ,flounders, pollack (foul stuff the cat had) soul,whiting,herring,dogfish or mullet. Chippys in town used to sell Dogfish as Rock Salmon.

    I used to get given the occasional salmon by the river netsmen for helping them.

    Often catch a bin load of mackerel in summer id give them away on the beach.

    I used to catch a lot of brown shrimp prawns,lobster and crab and pick muscles cockles,razors and winkles also.Not keen at all on the dunlop limpets :) or whelks<X

    And yes the seaweed is worth trying.

    Laverbread is a seaweed delicacy in Wales.

    Ive actually got some in my cupboard (tinned-not quite as nice).

    I also collected marsh samphire in August and id go fly fishing up river for trout.

    You can eat very well and pretty healthily on the coast.

  • Coming back to something I posted on another thread. What do the eastern Europeans do with all the little crabs they catch in Poole Harbour?

    They boil them and eat them I suppose. We are a funny nation. What we export for others to feast on. Saying that. I’m up for trying a spider crab myself.

  • Personally i eat to survive,not for any perceived sexual prowess....Id like to know that the food i eat is wholesome and not filled with PCBs weedkillers sulphates nitrates chlorates and other toxins just because is expedient for a few controlling the food chain to make shitloads of money while wilfully poisoning us.

  • If you want long chain omega-3 in your diet to improve your sex life, go for tinned sardines but ones in water not oil.

    I’m up for a bit of hot spicy sex if it’s not actually with the fish, but I hate hot spicy food. What’s with the world these days. Everything’s got to have chilli in it? Since I stopped drinking gallons of beer and smoking. I just can’t handle anything too spicy hot. I’m quite fortunate in that Im skinny, no real dietary issues, love food and I’m prepared to make the changes necessary to reduce, waste, harm and guilt. Making a conscious effort to focus on quality not quantity. Price will always be a limiting factor with me though. Eat within my means and all that.

    If you want food to improve your sex life, give your partner something full of chillies on a night out and then have anal in the morning...

    Is there any truth in that? I’m sure she would appreciate me standing with my dick out in the cold morning sunshine beforehand or dangling it in a cup of cold water over the bathroom sink first. Poor lass.
