The Doctors Farmacy interview with Dr. Mark Hyman & Seatopia Founder

Dr. Mark Hyman featured Seatopia founder, James Arthur Smith on his podcast, 
in EPISODE 627 of THE DOCTOR'S FARMACY:  How Do I Eat Regeneratively Raised Farmed Fish?
Just like there are convention feed lot agriculture of beef and poultry, in the world of farmed seafood, there is also feed lot fish.  But there is also "regenerative aquaculture" which we'll talk about today!

Dr. Mark Hyman went on to say: 
I would eat a lot more fish if I knew it was free from toxins like heavy metals, PCBs, and other dangerous compounds. It’s an incredibly healthy protein source when we can eliminate these factors, but sourcing clean fish can be tough.

Today, I’m taking a deep dive into the issues surrounding fish, what kinds we should be eating, and everything in between with James Arthur Smith.

I’ve talked a lot on the podcast about regenerative agriculture, but today we’re going to dive into regenerative aquaculture. James explains what these practices look like and why sustaining vital oceans doesn’t mean we have to stop fishing, but that we need to stop using extractive processes.

We discuss the different ways that fish often become laden with toxins, what varieties are more or less likely to be affected, and how regenerative aquaculture can produce seafood that is healthier for our bodies and for our oceans.

I appreciate James Arthur’s solution-oriented approach to seafood, which is a welcome angle from the fear-mongering we often hear in terms of health and climate problems. We talk about how choosing sustainable and clean seafood is one of many ways to vote with your dollar to impact our food system for the better.
