Eat Clean with Mercury-Free Wild Alaska Salmon Dip Recipe


SafeCatch Wild Alaska Salmon Dip

Eating fish is a special treat for us land-locked, rural Wisconsin homesteaders. When we do indulge in a salmon dip treat, we want real food and clean fish on our plate. Choosing fish that is both sustainably harvested and free from toxic mercury can be challenging to find, but fortunately innovative new technologies can now determine what’s healthy for our plate. 

The list of underlying health benefits of fish runs long, from being high in omega-3 fatty acids for heart and brain health to providing a wealth of vitamins and minerals. The hidden dark downside remains increasing high levels of mercury found in fish, a toxic substance that you can’t see, taste or smell. Coal burning power plants kick mercury into the air that then settle into our waters where it is eventually ingested by fish.

Mercury exposure can be especially harmful to pregnant women as it can lead to brain development disabilities, so much so that the FDA and EPA recommend pregnant women and women of child-bearing age avoid fish with notably higher levels of mercury.

Mercury Testing Technology for Fish

The challenge is how can you really know what fish is safe to eat? Fortunately, innovative sustainability entrepreneurs are forging new paths to connect us to healthy fish choices good for our planet. From chefs on the Gulf Shores of Alabama generating awareness of underutilized regional fish to San Diego sushi chefs featured on culinary tours who exclusively working with local fisherman, you can find increasing safe fish options while dining out.

When dining at home, we like to choose options from SafeCatch, a company blending technology with better seafood choices. SafeCatch revolutionized the industry by developing a process to test every can of fish they produce, which enables their tuna, for example, to have a mercury limit 10-times stricter than the FDA. They also use sustainable sourcing and harvesting practices that follow Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch Program guidelines, the global authority on ethical and sustainable standards.
