Salmon is a preferred fish in the upscale market. With its surplus of fats, it is rich in Omega 3 oil and is considered among the healthiest foods to eat.
But, did you know how hard it is to catch salmon? They live in the ocean deep and are considered good, fast swimmers.
To reproduce, they go back to the calm waters where they were born. These “nurseries’’ can be up to 1,000 kilometers away. They negotiate such a long haul, courtesy of their strong, powerful muscles.
As soon as they reach the calm waters, they stop feeding, relying on their vast reserves of fats.
An average salmon grows to about one and a half meters long and weighs 50 kilograms.
TRIVIA PA MORE (Various Sources): Hellenic Republic is the official name of Greece. Clothing and apparel are among its principal exports.
The ancient Greeks chewed a gum-like substance called mastic that came from the bark of a tree. (#factsite).
Juicy Fruit and Wrigley’s spearmint gums are both more than 100 years old.
Worcestershire sauce is made from dissolved fish. That makes it no different from our bagoong (fish sauce).
Egg yolk is one of the few foods that naturally contain vitamin D. Egg yolk, plus lots of sunshine, which is also rich in vitamin D, is therefore good protection against Covid-19.
