Where can one get nice wild salmon from the west coast in Calgary? Why is it always Atlantic when the coast is so close and WHY are people still eating farmed salmon?!!
i don't know about 'nice' wild salmon, but most grocery stores seem to stock some wild (sockeye mostly) along side the farmed stuff. Superstore especially (although usually it's been frozen). the fish shops should stock wild stuff too. i'm pretty sure Boyd's only stocks wild salmon.
as an aside, i know current fish farming practices are terrible, what with the lice, drugs, and over-crowding, but assuming it were done properly, wouldn't that be a better option than depleting the wild stocks?
Boyd's get their wild sockeye shipments in late august/early September every year, so you'll have to wait for Sockeye. I usually get a few pounds flash frozen so I can enjoy it year round.
As previously mentioned, they do mark their fish "wild" or "farmed."
