Top 5 Reasons to eat Wild Alaskan Fish

Top 5 Reasons to eat Wild Alaskan Fish

March 10, 2017

There are so many really great reasons to eat wild fish, especially wild Alaskan fish like Bristol Bay Sockeye Salmon, Troll Caught King Salmon or Line Caught Pacific Halibut. It is hard to stop on just five reasons, but here is a short list of my 5 top reasons to eat wild Alaskan fish. I hope you enjoy it!

  1. Wild Alaskan fish is often traceable. Meaning you can track it from boat to plate and be assured that the fish on your plate is exactly what it was represented to be. Traceability in the seafood industry is a hot topic these days - studies have shown that 60% or more of the fish you find in restaurants and markets is mislabeled in some way. Sometimes it's a lower quality species subbed in for a more expensive one. Sometimes it's farmed fish being represented as wild. Traceable fish = peace of mind.
  2. Wild Alaskan fish is often caught by independent fishermen on small boats. When you eat fish caught this way, you are supporting a fishing method that is spearheading sustainability methods and keeping wild fish around for future generations. 
  3. You are what you eat. Wild Alaskan fish is Non-GMO and doesn't have any of the artificial colorants or antibiotics that are now the norm in farmed salmon. Alaskan oceans are pristine and clear without pollutants, and the fish you eat from their waters are clean and pure as well. 
  4. It's good for your heart, brain, and vision, particularly salmon. It is a little complex, but the simplified reason is because the DHA in the Omega-3s turns into the aptly-named Protectins. Protectins protect your brain from the excessive inflammation that causes dementia, and also help prevent sight loss as you age. Wild Alaskan fish is low in saturated fats, full of Vitamin B12 and Selenium, and is an excellent source of protein.
  5. Best reason of all - it tastes great and it's easy to prepare. Wild Alaskan Fish like Sockeye Salmon is a delicious addition to your usual chicken or beef, and there are so many delicious ways to prepare it. Like Alaska Sockeye Salmon Piccata, for one.
