In Response To: farmed salmon taste gross..... (Meg)
Straight from the fly-fisherman. Wild trout (and wild salmon) flesh is red because they feed on a high protein diet, sort of like power protein. High protein as in krill for salmon and aquatic insects in fresh water lakes and rivers for trout. These fresh water lakes need to be alkaline in order to support aquatic insects as chitin from mayflies, sedges etc. (and chitin from krill) needs chalk. Wild red trout are fast growing, high fat fish, that also have an excellent taste. Many wild trout however have white flesh. They live in acidic rivers and lakes, usually mountain regions, feed predominantly on fish and their food value is much poorer, therefore, their taste is inferior.
Farmed trout are red because they add a dye called Astaxanthin to the fish pellets, alongside with growth hormones, antibiotics and all the other goodies. As they can't add scrappie infected ground up sheep bones to cattle feed anymore they probably add it to fish meal.
Remember, it has to say "wild", wild is always far more expensive.
That reminds me to check if they can still feed chicken sh.. to cattle:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. regulators are considering whether feeding chicken litter to cattle poses any risk of transmitting the deadly mad cow disease, a top U.S. health official said Monday.
