I’m on a tight budget and can’t always afford to buy fresh salmon.
I’m wondering if the canned varieties are okay?

The health benefits associated with eating fatty fish like salmon make it something that should be a staple in everyone’s diet.
But it’s quite understandable that fresh seafood isn’t something everyone can afford to buy on a regular basis.
While fresh- caught salmon is best (and is something you should certainly treat yourself to when you’re able), canned is much easier on the budget and will allow you to get many of the same health benefits.
In fact, in 2004 Purdue researchers published a study in the Journal of Food Science comparing omega-3 fatty acid levels in a variety of canned fish products. One of the two brands of canned salmon they tested had the highest level of omega-3 DHA of all the varieties of canned fish tested And the second brand of canned salmon beat out both albacore and light tuna, supplying significantly higher levels of DHA.
Just try to get a BPA-free variety if you can.
