Salmon is one of the most popular edible fish of all. Shops sell fish caught in the wild, but their main produce is salmon from breeding farms, the effluent from which can pollute rivers, lakes and oceans. German and Chilean scientists have used fluorescence measurements, high-resolution mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy to answer this question.
