Is farm-raised fish always more sustainable than fish caught in the wild?

    Not always. Fish farming has several environmental concerns associated with it. Overcrowding is an obvious one, though this tends to be less of an issue with fish that form schools in the wild. Salmon and other carnivorous fish require fish meat in their feed, and this makes the cost of salmon farming high enough that some farmers have experimented with a vegetarian diet for the salmon, which has yet to work out. Also, some sea lice and parasites have posed real threats to farmed fish, due to the ease with which they are able to spread within a fish farm.
