– Catfish can grow to considerable size. To accelerate their growth, many fish farmers feed them hormones.
– Mackerel contains mercury which is not cleared from but accumulated in the human body, causing various diseases.
– There aren’t many healthy fatty acids in tilapia, yet the concentrations of harmful fats in it are almost as high as in lard. Excess consumption of this fish leads to an increase in cholesterol levels and makes the body more sensitive to allergens.
– Eels have lots of fat, and thus easily absorb industrial and farm waste in the water. American species have the highest level of such intoxication.
– Most of the pangasius we see in our stores is brought from Vietnam, namely from the Mekong River that is considered one of the most contaminated water bodies in the world.
– Tilefish is the leader in mercury contamination, and it’s often caught in breach of the rules, increasing the risk of food poisoning.
– Sea bass contains an ample amount of mercury. Sometimes, especially when it’s served as fillet, instead of sea bass, you get pangasius or some other cheaper fish.
– Dollarfish, more commonly known as oilfish, contains gempylotoxin — a waxy substance that is not metabolized at all.
– Tuna contains lots of mercury, especially blackfin and bluefin tuna. Additionally, there’s precious little free-grown tuna in the stores because it’s nearly extinct.
– Fresh fish always has shiny scales and clear eyes. Take a fish in your hands and look — a spoiled fish will have its tail lowered weakly.
– When buying live fish from a tank, make sure the water is clear. Choose fish that aren’t near the surface but closer to the bottom.
– When buying salmon, choose chunks with white threads in them. If a chunk is completely red, it’s probably been dyed.
