I haven't thought it out at all--but I do have
a kneejerk reaction to farm raised Atlantic
salmon, and I never buy it. Now intellectually
I should eat more fish, especially oily salmon
which is so good for you, but I only treat myself
to a little wild salmon now and then. Having
cheap farm raised fish is probably a net net
good thing and I think I'd be on very thin ice
if I said it is in any way different from wild
(except to say that it competes with fishermen,
and that when it isn't colored it looks to me
rather unappealing).

I've been eating more halibut lately, gosh it has
been good and they had a good catch this season.

I'll try to do a little reading and maybe I'll get
around to clarifying my unease about farm raised
salmon--if I figure it out. I eat pork--and it is
a little nutty to do that and be at all squeamish
about farm raised fish. My stomach is stronger than
my intellect.
