Wild vs. Farmed Salmon – What’s the Difference?
All salmon delivery available online is frozen. Most fishers freeze their catch, then ship it out to their customers. This keeps the fish safe and delicious to eat. However, not all frozen salmon is wild. There’s an important difference between wild and farmed frozen salmon. For most people, the distinction boils down to taste, mouthfeel, and harvesting sustainability.
Wild salmon just tastes better. Salmon flavor is directly related to the fish’s fat content. In other words, fish with more oil tend to be more flavorful than leaner alternatives. Wild salmon have a naturally higher oil content than farmed salmon. The farther the fish travels upstream, the more fat it has generated within its body. Farmed salmon often have not traveled to spawn in generations, which means their genetic fat production has deteriorated. The result is a leaner, milder fish. By contrast, wild salmon will always have a silkier mouthfeel and more robust flavor. That’s exactly what you’ll find at Lummi Island Wild.

Keep in mind that different types of salmon have different shelf lives. This is directly related to the fish’s fat content.
