Eco Trip - Salmon Farming

Salmon consumption in the U.S. has more than doubled in the past 15 years, an increase made possible in large part by the rise of commercial salmon farming. Meanwhile, wild salmon populations are at historic lows on both coasts of the U.S., and wild Atlantic salmon is commercially extinct.

On tomorrow night's season finale of Eco Trip - host David de Rothschild explores the complicated issues surrounding this culinary favorite, including the pro and con arguments surrounding salmon farming.

Eco Trip airs on Sundance Channel Tuesday @9pm. For more info head to http://www.sundancechannel.com/ecotrip.
