That's great! It'll save me a lot of money on avocado and fish. In hindsight it makes total sense that organic fish wouldn't make a differenc.

When it comes to fish, I read that it is better to buy fish caught in the ocean rather than fresh water.

Can you think of why this is? Lower ppm of contaminants in the ocean and the potential antiseptic qualities of salt jump to me as two possible reasons.

I read that the volume of ocean/salt water is so much greater than fresh water, therefore, the concentration of contaminants is much lower.
