know what you mean. We have to depend on frozen fish pretty much..The only local, fresh fish we can get is cat fish and it is one kind of fish I do not like.. But even though we have to depend on the frozen stuff or go to the fresh fish market, which is out of or price range, we still manage to get our share of fish.

Which you aren't really getting from farm-raised fish.

The farm-raised fish is fed corn, which causes them to make Omega-6 instead of Omega-3, which is passed on to you. Omega-6 is the fat we store in our bellies for to survive winters when there isn't enough food...except that in the first world we don't really need to store fat in our bellies because we HAVE enough food all winter long. We don't use it, it remains stored, and then it affects our health.

Or so I read.

OP, sadly none. Can't afford it. And don't want fish from China or Vietnam. Would love to eat fresh fish every few days. Tried canned tuna and felt sick from it. Same with canned salmon. The salmon looked like it was all scraps they sweep up and can. Yuch!

Bay scallops or sea scallops? If sea scallops, do you buy dry packed?

Please, they do not feed fish just corn. Farm-raised fish are fed fish-meal, which has a blend of ingredients, including corn and fish-oil. Depending on the exact diet, farm-raised fish can have even higher levels of
Omega-3 when compared to wild fish.

Just bay scallops--usually 1/2 lb for the 2 of us. I put them in a dish w/ a little bit of milk on the bottom of it. I drizzle olive oil on them and use a little lemon pepper. My mother made them that way and I still do. Nothing fancy, but they're good that way.

I read that soaking in milk for 30 min.before takes the fishy odor away and also tenderizes them.

I agree with Mightyqueen on this one ... after everything I've read, I stay away from farm raised. Wild salmon has fewer calories and half the fat content of farmed salmon. Farmed contains higher levels of inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids (saturated fat) — and that's fat you do not want. Plus, farm feed makers save money by bulking up the fish’s food pellets with soy - I stay away from anything soy because it affects your hormones.

Only WILD for me!
