Atlantic salmon farmed in net pens in British Columbia is now a Seafood Watch “Good Alternative (yellow).” The previous “Avoid (red)” rating was due to low scores in criteria for chemical use and disease and the assessment for the disease criterion has improved, which changed the overall rating. Of the estimated 76,000 Mt of Atlantic salmon farmed in British Columbia, ~52,000Mt is imported into the U.S.. Seafood Watch also defers to Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) certified salmon as at least equivalent to a Seafood Watch “Good Alternative (yellow)” rating as well.
