Why You should Avoid Farm Raised Fish and Eat Only Wild Seafood!
Farm-raised fish show lower levels of Omega-3
Just when you started to learn about the benefits of omega-3 and control of inflammation, this recent story in Acres USA points out that farm-raised fish contain lower levels of omega-3.
Researchers from Wake Forest University have found something fishy about one of America’s most popular fish foods: farm-raised tilapia.
Common belief has it that fish are a good source of beneficial omega-3 fatty acids, a way of restoring America’s distorted omega-3 to omega-6 ratio.
Investigators found, however, that tested farm-raised tilapia (and catfish) not only has low levels of omega-3, it has more omega-6s than bacon, doughnuts and 80 percent lean hamburger.
Even tested farm-raised salmon has 3 grams of omega-3 per 100 grams of flesh and farm-raised trout 4 grams.
Farm-raised tilapia, however, has less than a half gram per 100.
The main culprit behind the high omega-6 levels in farm-raised fish is apparently the corn-soy diet.
Most wild fish eat greens (and/or other fish that eat greens), which is what produces omega-3s, as is the case with pasture-fed livestock.
For those who eat fish as a way of controlling inflammatory diseases via an increase of omega-3 intake, farm-raised tilapia is not a good choice, according to the researchers.

Eat Wild fish with Naturally High Levels of Omage 3 Fats for Arthritis Pain Relief.
Avoid eating farm raised fish.
This is the same with eating meat- only eat animals raised organically on their natural diet to get the right amount of omega 3!
