You should be very careful when you buy this fish and you are planning to cook a delicious dinner. It is very important to know from where this fish comes from. Not all of the fishes in the stores come from natural and clean waters. Some of them are grown up in factory farms. In this case the fish are fed with many different kinds of feeds and fertilizers instead off algae and plants in the open clean waters.
