Salmon is one of the best sources
of the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA.
A 3.5-ounce (100-gram) portion of farmed salmon has 2.3 grams of
long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, while the same portion of wild salmon contains
2.6 grams. Unlike most
other fats, omega-3 fats are considered "essential," meaning you must
get them from your diet since your body can't create them
