After listening to Amy McFadden's narration of this exposé, salmon croquettes may never taste the same. McFadden uses a podcaster- style of storytelling, friendly and righteous, to animate the history of farmed salmon's calculated rise to prominence. It now accounts for 90% of U.S. salmon. Though fish farming is touted as sustainable, these ocean feedlots have the highest mortality rate (1 in 5) of any farmed animal. Besides suffering from parasites and disease, some penned-in fish ingest chemicals, including red dye, to give them "the illusion of health." It's not all gloom and doom, as McFadden's upbeat delivery ends the audiobook with a positive report on efforts to save wild salmon from extinction.
