Fremont Fish Market Wild Caught Pink Salmon

Salmon is often recommended as part of a healthy diet. It’s a good source of protein and is high in omega-3 fatty acids, which are polyunsaturated healthy fats that can promote heart health.

Aldi sells several types of salmon. One of their more popular options is a seasoned Mediterranean Herb Atlantic Salmon that’s stocked in the refrigerated fresh meat case. Aldi also sells fresh unseasoned Atlantic salmon, fresh Coho salmon, and fresh Norwegian Atlantic salmon. Occasionally, Aldi sells specialties such as fresh stuffed salmon.

In addition, Aldi sells wild caught pink salmon in the everyday freezer aisle. Pink salmon is a small, plentiful type of salmon common in the North Pacific. Pink salmon has a mild flavor and is often used in canned salmon. It has a lower oil content and fewer omega-3s than other types of salmon, but it still contains plenty of vitamins and nutrients.

  1. I can get something similar from the local Family Fare. But I think the fish from Aldi tastes better.

  2. I buy this regularly because of its affordable price and the fact that it is wild caught. I will not ever, ever, buy or eat farmed fish of any kind because it is often reported to be unhealthful and perhaps contaminated with bacteria or other bad substances. The wild-caught salmon from Aldi is a fish I can trust.

    • Not to overlook that it also can spread diseases to wild salmon, and the salmon farmers will kill seals or other animals they think are trying to get at their fish.


    Totally agree, farm raised fish in filthy polluted waters, yum?
