There is an interesting story on the cover of the Dining Section (page F1) of the Wednesday, May 28, New York Times. Headed "Farmed Salmon Looking Less Rosy," the story, by Marian Burros begins,<br><br><br><br>
"The images of salmon farming that the industry promotes seem pristine and natural, of fish frisking in icy cold clean waters, of wise management saving an endangered species while providing shoppers with the fish they love.<br><br><br><br>
"But critics say that image of the regal salmon, America's most popular fresh fish, is not the whole reality. Recent lawsuits accuse the industry of polluting the ocean, endangering dwindling stocks of wild salmon and failing to tell shoppers that they use artificial colors to make the fish red."<br><br><br><br>
Those lines do a good job of summing up the story but you will find a lot more interesting detail if you read the whole article which can be found on line at:<br><br><br><br><a href="" target="_blank"></a><br><br><br><br>
That address is probably too long to appear as a link including all of the characters. You will have to manually add any characters that don't appear as part of the link (usually in blue) or try this "tiny URL" instead: <a href="" target="_blank"></a><br><br><br><br>
The story provides a nice opportunity for letters to the editor on the joys of plant based diets.<br><br>

The website <a href="" target="_blank"></a> is a good resource for information on the downside of fish consumption. It discusses the cruelty, environmental hazards, and health issues associated with fish consumption.<br><br><br><br>
