Chris Oh: feed the salmon fish oil, and price them higher at supermarkets.
ditch the vege oil version altogether

Phil Borton: I hate fish!

NeedMorePuppies: Is that a fucking doge shirt

erling nilsen: Fish farming is great, it's way more effective than any landbased farm, and the planet needs food. New tchnology is allready solving the issues, new closed farms are being built wich will stop the need of chemicals or spreading of parasites, while creating biogas out the waste.

HeadstrongHarpy: This didn't answer the question the other video said it would: do farmed fish have less mercury?

proteusx: I hate farmed fish and I also hate effeminate limp-writed types like this one.

Marcus Guiliano: The salmon farming industry needs a massive overhaul. Open net farming is impacting the eco-system by spreading disease in to the wild fish population. Wild salmon populations are plummeting near farms, whales no longer have food and on the West coast of Canada bears are starving because of very weak salmon runs. Sea Lice and many of fish disease spread from the farms. Fish farms never ever shovel their manure. It just piles up on the ocean floor. The fish are forced to swim in this filth. Fish pellets are treated with pesticides to preserve the high fat content of the food. No matter how high quality the pellets, they are treated with toxic chemicals as a preservative.
Salmon farms must go to a closed containment system to even be considered "sustainable". And that will shrink production and raise the price. But our environment won't suffer.
Regulations barely exist. Most countries protect the salmon industry before the citizens. In Canada the gov't pays full retail value to the farm when fish are lost due to disease. They don't need insurance because the gov't bails them out at the tax payers expense.
I can go on and on about misleading marketing and industry paid for science stats too.
A good substitute is Arctic Char which is raised in a closed containment farm.
I have many video on my channel that talk about the impacts of salmon farms. I just interviewed BC Marine Biologist Alexandra Morton on my youtube channel. She has watched her eco-system fall apart after salmon farms where introduced.

riglor: check out you tube vids on salmon farming,you will never eat salmon again

teleroi: FUKUSHIMA, SEA LICE, SALMON LEUKEMIA, PCB, DIOXIN, BALTIC POISON SEA PELLETS

Ash A: Fish farming is horrible. By crowding fish into small pens, disease is spread rapidly which is then transmitted to wild salmon which has a devastating effect on wild salmon runs some years. This is especially true for Canadian salmon from British Columbia.

delawaredistroyer: never eat farmed salmon. look up documentaries on youtube for the truth.

Kedar R: This video feels like it was put together in 15 mins and with information from a Google search. Makes me suspicious about the credibility of the rest of your videos.

Ducky1521: Holy shit mate... You didn't dig very hard for this video. One word "Ethoxyquin"

ecodude: u have no idea

Venice Mackay: the salmon from Norway is filth full of toxins the veg fat is the least of your worries with this farmed salmon

Ray Turner: Huge difference when you see farmed salmon compared to wild Alaskan salmon! If I could not afford to buy wild Alaskan salmon I wouldn't eat salmon at all. Norway is one of the richest countries in the world, so there is no excuse for not regulating the farmed fish industry!

aos39: "Salmon confidential" case closed Fuk Norway they are using a very poisonous additive making the fish lethal

Lisa Baird: You forgot to mention the pesticides and antibiotics they feed these fish. Plus farmed salmon has 4 times the fat content of wild salmon. Toxins are stored in fat. Farmed salmon always texts higher for toxins and pcbs, pesticides, etc. It's disgusting how they are selling food to the public that can literally cause cancer.

Jesset Hollywood: Farm fish not safe, most are sick from chemicals used in feed, fat content TWICE as high then wild run fish, Columbia river where they raised in pen's are all contaminated killing wild run fish on there way to spawning grounds, and now the Fukushima radiation taking there tolls, wild stock salmon down 90% this is what's being withheld from the public.

Ross Biddle: Farming fish is even more damaging to wild populations than capture fisheries are. Farmed fish are kept in close proximity and so are a breeding ground for disease and parasites. These spread to wild wish populations and massively reduce there numbers, not to mention spreading novel diseases from opposite sides of the planet that the fish have no resistance to. The escaped fish interbreed with surrounding populations too, reducing their fitness and genetic distinctness, which also reduces their wild numbers. If they had done any research beyond one Google search they would have seen all of this, very disappointed in DNews this time.
