    This is a fact of g m o farm raised from a plastic tub . Dont eat man made fish. Now just think after 100 years of farm raised salmon at what point do the fish think plastic is natural & how much micro plastic do they abzorb or the chemical imprent of estergon? I do not think that salmon is healthy for humans to eat anymore. It is a multy million business though & who cares if there is a profit to be made. So go & eat my share or ask why the wild life is sick
