Something’s Fishy with Farmed Fish

Did you know...

Global farmed fish production now tops beef production? And that this year, for the first time ever, people will eat more fish raised on farms than caught in the wild? Fish is widely thought of as a healthful and environmentally friendly alternative to beef. But farm-raised fish are being fed antibiotics, synthetic pigments, and pesticides, along with highly toxic compounds like copper sulfate. Yuck!

Not only do you ingest these drugs and chemicals if you eat the fish...

...but these toxins also build up in sea-floor sediments and wind up polluting our oceans and the wild fish that swim in them. With industrial fish farming, many of the same problems of factory farms are now being taken to the seas – on a massive scale. This has huge implications for our environment, and for your health.
