When looking to make smart choices for eating well, why should wild salmon be part of your plan? Well, it starts with this: The American Heart Association recommends eating 2 servings of fish (particularly fatty fish) per week (HERE). Also, take a look at the nutritional values of wild Alaskan salmon, summarized so well by AlaskaSeafood.org HERE, as well as Alaskan whitefish HERE and Alaskan crab HERE. So many choices from the clear, cold waters of Alaska to help you eat well and eat right!
