Seeking Truth at a Norwegian Salmon Farm

Featured BlogHer Network Post

A self-described "dyed-in-the-wool locavore, organic-head, greenmeister, hater-of-all-things-mass-produced, factory farm-loathing, Big Agra-hating, Alice Waters-loving, Wendell Berry-quoting, EAT MORE KALE tee shirt-wearing, Oceana-supporting, cliche-on-two-legs" foodie writes about her visit to a hyper-clean, super-efficient Norwegian salmon farm. Her take away? Not everything is black or white, especially in aquaculture:

"I would like very much to say that my trip confirmed what I, in my heart, already know. I would like very much to say that what I, in my heart, already know is also unimpeachably accurate. I would very much like to say that when I stand at my local fish market counter and shell out $29.99 a pound for wild salmon, that it has been caught and processed ethically (and is far easier on the environment compared to farmed fish, in ways too numerous to mention here), and so the decision between eating it or its farmed cousin from Norway is a no-brainer. But I can’t; it’s not so easy."
