Today, farmed salmon are being "trained" to live on corn. These salmon are nowhere near as healthy to eat as farmed salmon eating a "normal" diet. Remember, salmon are carnivorous; eating a majority of their food as vegetable matter is not healthy.
Tilapia, catfish, and trout are fresh-water fish; most other fish sold in food markets are ocean fish. There are different nutrients available to these animals; be aware of that.
I like the fact this article mentions overfishing. Fish such as orange roughy or Chilean sea bass (actually a toothfish) breed very slowly and are in more danger of overfishing than cod... and we saw what happened to them in the Grand Banks.
