Canned Salmon Advantages

Paul Greenberg’s article in The Atlantic magazine discusses the advantages of eating canned salmon over canned tuna.

“In terms of fisheries management, sustainability, and health, salmon is superior.”

Paul sums it up in 3 main reasons:

  1. We know how many salmon there are and how many we can catch.
  2. We know how to catch salmon without significantly hurting the marine environment.
  3. The species of salmon used in canned salmon eat lower on the food chain than tuna, and are thus lower in toxins.
