Fish – Fresh Vs Frozen

Posted on the 08 February 2013 by T_mackinnon @tedmackinnon

Is Fresh Fish really better then Frozen?

Certainly a good debate as we have always been trained that fresh is better, but is it better for the environment? modern Modern freezing methods have improved drastically and retain quality, nutritional benefits sealing in the fresh flavor until it is time to cook the fish.

Several years ago, a group of economists teamed up to understand how sustainable food systems could be developed to feed 9 billion people. They compared wild and farmed salmon and came to a rather surprising conclusion: “When it comes to salmon, the question of organic versus conventional and wild versus farmed matter less than whether the fish is frozen or fresh.” Fillets that are flown from far away lands add an enormous climate burden that swamps the potential benefits of organic farming or sustainable fishing.   For more information on this study, see
