Amusing anecdote :

Salmon has been the most widely eaten fish in Europe for thousands of years. The name has roman roots : “Salmo” means “which jumps…”. It is a fatty fish but has no more calories than lean meat. The fact that salmon is rich in Omega 3 and Omega 6 gives it protective qualities – a proof point being the remarkably low level of cardiovascular pathologies amongst eskimos and the Japanese…two groups that consume very large quantities of this fish!
