Do You Know the Best Fish Oil Omega3 Foods?

posted in: Hemp 0

The best omega3 foods are without a doubt fish, such as anchovies, mackerel, salmon, hoki and tuna. Then you have the non-fish alternatives, such as nuts, hemp, broccoli, tofu and flaxseed oil.

These are all good alternatives to get your essential fats from. There is one caveat though, the fish are swimming in more contaminated waters every day, and the non-fish alternatives do not contain as much EPA and DHA, which are the two most important fatty acids for humans.

For example, flaxseed oil contains ALA fats, which have to be converted by the human body to EPA and DHA. Less than 10% of ALA is converted into these essential fish oil fats.

The best omega3 foods are fatty fish, but you have to make sure that you do not consume large amounts, because it can lead to problems with heavy metal and toxic poisoning. Experts recommend that you do not eat fish more than two or three times a week.

If you really want to get the health benefits of omega-3 fish oils, you might want to look into dietary supplements. More and more people are discovering the powerful effects of omega-3 fish oil products.

These products should be molecularly distilled and ultra refined for safety and best results. They should go through strict regulations that guarantee the purity and quality of these oils. When you start reading about them, you might be confused, because there are so many products, and all of them look great.

In order to find the best omega-3 products, I suggest you look for supplements that can prove their effectiveness and purity. Many of the best companies are small, niche brands that are constantly improving their products.

They are not afraid of putting their products to the test in clinical trials and independent reviews. This is what I would look for if I would look for the best omega-3 supplements.

I personally have been using an omega-3 supplement that contains hoki and tuna oil. You might not have heard of hoki, they are deep water fish living outside the New Zealand coast. This hoki and tuna oil blend has been shown to be up 2 1/2 times more effective than other products out there.

Methods of Fish Farming

posted in: Hemp Farming 0


Farm fishing is on the rise around the world. In fact most of the salmon on the market today is farm raised. Other types of fish raised by fish farms are cod, catfish, sea bass, carp and tilapia.

To understand fish farming we should look at the way it is done today. There are two ways fish are farmed today is by the Intensive Aquaculture and Extensive Aquaculture methods.

Intensive Aquaculture

The main ingredient to Intensive Aquaculture is that the fish being raised are fed by the farmer and do not have to look for their food. The number of fish you can raise is dependent on the species of the fish, the amount of oxygen available and in some cases the food that is provided.

This type of system requires large amounts of fresh water. The best and cheapest way is to provide a cage in the river or ocean. This will supply plenty of fresh water for the fish to breath plus there is no need to cleanse the water. One type of fish raised this way is salmon which utilizes cages in the ocean.

An other method for supplying fresh water that is available is a combination of hydroponic horticulture and water treatment. This method removes the wastes generated by the fish and returns pure clean water. The wastes are recycled to grow various vegetables and other plants.

Extensive Aquaculture

As opposed to Intensive Aquaculture, Extensive Aquaculture allows the fish to find their own food. But the fish farmer does provide the initial push for the food. These Intensive Aquaculture farms are found in ponds and are enhanced by the farmer adding fertilizer to the pond allowing the vegetation and algae to grow which the fish will feed on.

Fish grown by this method are normally non-carnivorous. Several different types of fish can be grown by this method in the same pond because they do not compete for the same food sources. For example, some carp eat mainly grasses and tilapia eat algae. Since both these fish eat different sources of food, they can be raised together provided they are not overpopulated depleting the oxygen supply.


Today more than 40% of the fish consumed is farm raised by either the Intensive Aquaculture method or using the Extensive Aquaculture system. The type of fish raised varies from carnivorous fish such as salmon, trout and sea bass to non-carnivorous fish such as carp, tilapia, and catfish.
