New Zealand Farmed Salmon--safe?

AdamL | Mar 22, 2004 02:50 PM

I recently asked my local fish guy if the salmon he sells if wild or farmed. He told me that he sells farmed salmon from New Zealand, "but it's not the farmed salmon you've been reading about." According to him they use different pens, and these fish are raised in such a way that they're not subject to the same health concerns that have been making headlines lately.
I have a decent relationship with the guy and I trust that he's not trying to pull anything over on anyone--but I'm not so sure how accurate his claims are. Anyone know anything about this issue?
Thanks!
