Healthy food and dietary has become the major concern for people nowadays. Among all food that suggested by health professional, Salmon has earned its research reputation as a health-supportive food based largely on its unusual omega-3 fatty acid content.

Wild-caught cold water fish, like salmon, are higher in omega-3 fatty acids than warm water fish. In addition to being an excellent source of omega-3s, salmon are an excellent source of selenium, a very good source of protein, niacin and vitamin B12, and a good source of phosphorous, magnesium and vitamin B6.
