- Wild or Farm-Raised Salmon: wild is better because the fish eat a natural diet, instead of grains that farm-raised fish are fed. This makes the ratio of omega-3’s to omega-6’s better in wild fish. (Ideally, the ratio of omega fatty acids in our diets would be 3:1 (omega-6 to omega-3) but is typically closer to 30:1 in Western diets)
