Salmon Wars: The Dark Underbelly of Our Favorite Fish

by Catherine Collins Author and Douglas Frantz Author

Since the early 2010s, farmed salmon has been more popular than tuna on dinner tables across America. Though salmon is widely thought to be healthy, eco-friendly, and a more sustainability-conscious choice, the truth of the matter is decidedly different from this popular perception. Authors and investigative journalists Douglas Frantz and Catherine Collins travel to massive salmon farms and observe the often horrifying conditions on the ground. From Puget Sound to Norway, Frantz and Collins document the ways in which farmed salmon threatens water quality, food quality, wild salmon, and the ecosystems surrounding the farms. For those who enjoy eating this beautiful and flavorful fish, and for those invested in maintaining the freshwater and saltwater ecosystems that sustain these fish in the wild, Salmon Wars is a powerful, must-read book.
