It is recommended to eat about 4 oz. salmon 3 times a week. Due to personal reasons, buying wild salmon & cooking it myself is not an option. Most restaurants use farmed salmon instead of wild salmon, whose mercury & PCB levels are generally unknown but I assume acceptable since they are sold in the market. Does the total benefit of eating farm raised salmon of questionable mercury & PCB content outweigh the risk of not eating salmon at all?
