Is Fattier Fish Healthier?
In the case of salmon, the answer is yes. Salmon is fantastic sources of DHA, the omega-3 fatty acid that is essential for brain development, which they also get from phytoplankton. DHA is stored in salmon’s fat, most often in the belly, and as a 4-ounce serving of salmon can dish up 2,400 mg omega-3s. Farm salmon are also fattier than wild salmon, because they are fed a diet of grains and vegetable oils. Have a piece of salmon tonight for dinner.
