Sustenance From Sustainable Salmon

written by Guest Blogger April 4, 2013

Looking for more brain power? Today’s guest blogger, Gabriela Sneider, shares with us a scrumptious salmon recipe, the best kind of salmon to buy and reasons why we might want more of this pink-fleshed fish in our diet. 

Can’t get enough of salmon? Good! Salmon is known for its extraordinary amount of omega-3 fatty acid content which makes it a healthy dinner favorite. But it’s important to be informed of the good kinds of salmon that are not fished in a way that adversely affects the environment.


Wild Alaskan salmon is a great choice when looking for a sustainable option. Stay away from the salmon farmed in open net pens and instead move towards a more eco-friendly method. The fishery management practices in Alaska are especially efficient, which creates an abundance of Alaskan salmon.

As a college student, I don’t feel the need to spend tons of money on food but when I do, I love treating myself to a delicious piece of salmon. Salmon can be whipped up easily for many different occasions. It is a perfect choice to serve at a dinner party or to cook for one, but don’t forget sustainable is always the better alternative!

Reasons why salmon is a healthy choice!

  • Omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D in salmon can prevent chronic inflammation
  • Eating salmon can help cognitive function in the brain!
  • Fish oil is good for vision improvement
  • High protein in salmon which helps keep hair strong and healthy
