Dept. of what’s in a name: Famed pink salmon is really grey, ugh

Did you know that farm raised salmon has grey flesh, not pink? According to a recent story reported on and other sites, a lawsuit brought by conservationists has pushed three of the big supermarket chains–Krogers, Safeway, and Albertsons–to note that the farm-raised salmon they sell has been dyed to mimic the pink-tones of wild salmon, who eat a different diet that the farmed fish.
CNN on the fish story, neat Phil Huang column on this here.
