What is a fish?
Fish are an important resource for humans worldwide, especially as food. Commercial and subsistence fishers hunt fish in wild fisheries or farm them in ponds or in cages in the ocean.
Types of Fish
There are 32,000 species of fish, but here are the most common types of fish on the market. They all range in size, price, and taste- but a general rule of thumb is the darker the fish, the more intense in flavor it is.
Fish is packed with omega 3 fatty acids, high in protein, rich in nutrients, and relatively low in calories and fat.
Wild fish vs. Farmed Fish
What's the difference?
Farm raised fish is when farmers raise fish commercially in tanks or controlled pens in lakes, ponds, rivers, adn oceans. Due to the compact conditions, farm raised fish tend to have more toxins, antibiotics, and diseases.
Wild caught fish are fish that are free to roman in the ocean and to find their own good. In general, they are higher in protein and omega 3 fatty acids, but lower in levels of disease. One downside is they are more prone to mercury, which is something fish eaters should be aware of.
Which is better?
Wild caught fish is better for your health, as long as you take the mercury into account and limit your fish intake. In terms of price, farmed fish is much cheaper.
There are many ways to cook fish. You can grill fish, roast it, poach it, sauté it, fry it, eat it raw...the list goes on! Here are some of our favorite methods for the Fall season.
