Farmd and wild Trout are very different tasting. I was a fly fisherman
and only once did I eat the catch (used to return them to the stream)
and it had a stronger flavor than what is available in the fish store.
I had 'wild' Tilapia once in a restaurant and it had a much stronger flavor than farmed. A lot of Chefs think farmed Tilapia is on a par with Tofu
ie: completely tasteless.
Agree that flatfish - sole, flounder, fluke , halibut along
with cod and farmed catfish are less oily thus less fishy than
herring,bluefish, salmon etc.
