OCEAN CALLS Podcast – Season 3 Ep. 3: Should we eat wild or farmed Salmon?

Ocean Calls podcast episode 11, should we eat wild or farmed salmon? thumbnail

Salmon is a wonderfish – not only is it delicious, but it is also packed with nutrients. But the Atlantic salmon that we can find here in Europe is also an endangered species. So for us, as consumers, what is a more sustainable choice: wild or farmed salmon?

To explore these questions, Euronews science reporter Jeremy Wilks is joined by Åsa Maria Espmark, a senior scientist specialising in fish welfare at Norwegian food research institute Nofima and Ken Whelan, a senior advisor at the Atlantic Salmon Trust.

At the end of the episode you hear from a Dutch DJ about his favourite ocean experience.
