|You already know it's important to eat wild fish, or you probably wouldn't have found Sena Sea.
Here are four reasons why I think people should eat wild Alaskan fish. Leave a comment and let me know what you think - I would love to hear your opinion!
1. It's The Best
Wild Alaskan fish is the gold standard for premium seafood quality, taste, and texture around the world.
2. For Your Health
Wild fish is one of the best sources of Omega-3's and clean protein. It's also high in B vitamins, potassium, and antioxidants. Wild fish with high Omega-3's can reduce the risk of heart disease, fight inflammation, protect brain health, and even maintain weight control.
3. For The Salmon
The Alaskan fishing industry is focused on sustainability. We fish in a way that provides for generations to come. We don't fish until the run has reached target spawning numbers. At this point, commercial fishing has become such a part of the ecosystem, that the Copper River would foul (turn too acidic and ruin the conditions for young fry) if all the returning fish were left to spawn. Conversely, fish farming, which is thankfully not allowed in Alaska, fouls the rivers and threatens the wild stock.
4. For The Planet
By purchasing and eating wild salmon, you are giving value to the salmon. When we all value the salmon, we protect the streams and rivers for their return. When you choose to eat wild salmon, you are supporting the rivers and ecosystem that support the salmon.
