Oceana today called for global testing and labeling
of fish in response to new findings reported in the journal Science that consuming farm-raised salmon could pose significant health risks. The study exhaustively tested and compared salmon raised by the fast-growing aquaculture industry to those caught in the wild and found that many extremely toxic chemicals accumulate at significantly higher levels in farm-raised fish. The farm-raised fish consistently carry levels high enough to trigger warnings from the Environmental Protection Agency and the World Health Organization.
