Benefits of salmon

Salmon is rich in protein and B vitamins. Like all fish, it’s also a good source of omega-3 fatty acids. However, studies show that farmed salmon is lower in these important fatty acids than wild salmon. Other than that, salmon is a good source of potassium, containing more of this nutrient than the same weight of banana.
