    Eat whichever you feel like.
    Unless you're that particular about the nutritional content.

    Salmon is better for Omega 3's, which make it the more useful food (because so few are rich in Omega 3's), but Rainbox Trout is highly nutritious, and a good choice especially if you already take a fish oil pill.

    BTW, Trout's EFA profile is one of the best; it's just overshadowed by the easily superior Salmon.

    Just make sure it's fresh salmon or trout. If it's farm raised (usually fed grains) the fat profile is pretty similar to any other meat (ie it loses a lot of that much needed Omega 3 and has a lot more omega 6 instead).

    Damn I never knew that. I've been eating farm raised salmon for the longest time.
