Try going to some of the high-end restaurants in your area and talk to the chefs there. They'll have the most current information. Just avoid the lunch and dinner rushes ;-).

Hi. I live in Ireland too. As I understand it, farmed salmon is to be avoided at all costs. Even if it's organic, it could be fed grains which will mess up the fish's o6/o3 balance. I've seen people on paleo forums say there's nothing wrong with... (more)
