Reports I have read state Wild Alaskan Salmon has little or no mercury. I order mine from  
http://www.great-alaska-seafood.com. They talk about the purity of the product on the website.

I have been ordering seafood from them for years. Flash frozen, vac sealed, great quality, arrives overnight, free shipping, reasonable prices.

I don't know about other types of salmon.

Interesting...now I know why I instinctively put parsley
on my lemon and butter baked cod. I put it on my sunny
side eggs too. Maybe it helps with my merc fillings.

It definitely will help.  It may not wash it ALL out though.  Just a word of caution.  But I eat salmon regularly.

Stick with wild salmon;  They should not have mercury contamination.

Actually farm raised salmon normally contains low levels of mercury --often less than the concentrations of mercury found in wild salmon (this of course depends on type of salmon and where it is caught).

Farm raised salmon always has dye, and sometimes high levels of
PCBs, organo-chlorine pesticides, polybrominated diphenyl, and other chemicals. But unless feed stocks a contaminated with mercury (not normally the case) the mercury concentration in farm raised salmon is low compared to fish like Tuna.

I know that farmed salmon is not currently recommended on this diet (due to feed content), but it does contain 3 times less mercury than wild salmon. Both wild and farmed contain lower than government standards. I eat both and consider both to be very healthy.

Regarding farmed salmon, it sounds like we will start to see organic farmed salmon available soon. I'm hoping that the status of farmed salmon changes in these diets along with it. I believe it is an outdated ranking anyway. In reality, farmed salmon is no different than farmed beef or poultry except that it is lower in hormone/antibiotic content. The smear campaign against farmed salmon is entirely political, funded in whole by the Alaskan Salmon Fishery. There is no valid data to back up any of their claims. Even the PCB issue from 10 years ago is no longer an issue in recent years.

I am generally a-political but unfairnesses do get me a little riled up sometime. Here are some interesting links/views for anyone who cares to find out more ...

The "dye" issue is also very misleading to consumers. It is exactly the same substance (carotenoid) as what is found in wild salmon. It comes from a diet rich in shell fish containing this carotenoid that converts the flesh of salmon to its distinguishing salmon colour. It is not injected, as we are led to believe. It is part of their food supply, no different than you or I consuming a beta carotene supplement with our meal. Many salmon farms nowadays use a synthetic compound that is identical to what is found in the wild so as to maintain sustainability in the oceans.

I don't like the word "synthetic" coupled with "feed".  You make some interesting points and they are noted.  But I'm sticking with wild for now.  Maybe it will change down the road.

Thank you for that link Teri! I've been avoiding farmed salmon due to concerns that the fish may contain red food dye. I have no trouble finding wild salmon canned, but sometimes I want fresh fish, and the only kosher-certified fresh fish I can find is the farmed kind (not certified kosher, fresh wild salmon is fairly easy to locate on Long Island.)

It's nice to know that the color in farmed salmon is little more than a vitamin A supplement added to their feed.
