Wild Caught vs. Farmed
There is plenty of debate about wild-caught fish and fish that comes from a farm. The wild-caught side will tell you it’s the only way to enjoy fish and that it’s better for the environment. Farmed fish gets a bad rap for all the wrong reasons.
Neither option is better than the other. It all comes down to how sustainable either practice is.
Icelandic fish farms are sustainable and environmentally responsible. The fish farms in Iceland are massive nets, set in the ocean, a fish’s natural environment. The fish are not kept in tanks or pools and are never fed antibiotics due to the super clean and cold ocean waters.
Factory fishing for wild-caught fish can drag the ocean clean of all aquatic life, leaving it barren and making it unsustainable for new life. Not in Iceland! Where nearly all fisheries that fish in the wild are certified sustainable! Iceland's fishing industry sets the bar in creating sustainable ecosystems, setting the foundation for prosperous generations of sustainable fishing!
