Those who recommend against eating cultured fish have also been taken to task for expressing concern about public health when the levels of organic chemicals or trace metals contaminants found were at orders of magnitude below those thought to have any effect on human health. In fact, one recent study of wild and cultured salmon that looked at the levels of a flame-retardant chemical indicated that the average 70 kg human would have to eat six tonnes of salmon a day to incur health problems! What with claims and counterclaims about the safety of wild versus cultured fish, it is little wonder that the public is confused.
