Mercury in Alaska Wild Salmon
Mercury and other toxic heavy metals build up over time in fish and marine mammals. The short life span of salmon precludes them from building up heavy metals like mercury. Coho salmon spend just 18 months at sea before returning to spawn, and king salmon just 24 to 36 months.
With such a short life span, Alaska Wild Salmon do not contain unsafe levels of mercury that may occur in larger, older aged-fish or sea mammals. Alaska Wild Salmon is safe to eat! See this report by the Alaska Department of Public Health:
Specifically, see page 4, regarding the very low levels of mercury in Alaska salmon.
