Releases Exclusive Farmed Salmon Guide, the international online news source for seafood industry professionals, has just released a series of articles called Fresh Take: Farmed Salmon written by online editor Sean Murphy. The articles provide seafood professionals with specific information about farmed salmon and answer questions for those interested in sourcing the protein.

In this multi-article guide, Murphy tackles the controversial topics surrounding farmed salmon, including the use of antibiotics, the impact of salmon farms on the environment and the claims that eating salmon can be harmful to one’s health.

Murphy said he saw a need for this guide because salmon is considered the most popular finfish and the contributions of farmed seafood to the world’s dinner plate have been increasing every year.  “It’s worth presenting a guide to the controversy, including tips for navigating it, for anyone looking to buy into this high-demand protein,” he said.

As media coverage surrounding the farmed salmon industry is at its peak, Murphy says this guide cuts through the noise and misinformation with a supply of unbiased, helpful facts that would be useful to anyone, whether or not they are involved in the industry.  The articles, titled “Antibiotics: An extreme solution best in moderation,” “Farmed Salmon and Human Health: the Lowdown on PCBs,” “Problems and Progress: Salmon Farming and the Environment,” and “Putting it Together: One Chef’s Bucket List,” will, according to Murphy, “offer clear, objective evidence spelling out how much of the criticism of farmed salmon is accurate, and what isn’t, along with a list of questions would-be buyers should ask of salmon farmers, and how to interpret the answers.”
