What Seafood Should Not be Served?

"Farm-Raised" Salmon  =  "Farmed and Dangerous"


Jim Chambers                     Joe Boncore


Only from Sustainably Managed Fisheries

As conservationists, Prime Seafood will supply seafood only from sustainably managed, robust populations.  Unlike our competition, we do not trade in seafood being driven to extinction (such as "Chilean seabass," Atlantic halibut, orange roughy, marlin, bluefin tuna and mako sharks) or which contains unsafe levels of contaminants (most "farm-raised" salmon and shrimp imported from Asia).  Did you know that just one meal a month of the cheap, "farm-raised" salmon that is sold in many Washington area supermarkets and restaurants (often misleadingly labeled "organic") poses an "unacceptably high risk" of causing cancer?  This is the primary conclusion of recent scientific studies.  (For the details, see our "Farmed and Dangerous" section.)  If you want to help make a difference, let chefs and market managers know why you want wild not "farm-raised" salmon.  If you want to know which common seafood items to select in a restaurant or at the market and which to avoid (because their populations are too low or because they are dangerous to eat), you can find out by visiting the Environmental Defense website and by using the Seafood Guide developed by the Blue Ocean Institute, both of whose assessments we endorse.
