Just so, what are the four fish that should never be eaten?

Atlantic and Pacific Bluefin, Albacore, Yellowfin…they are all to be avoided. Canned tuna is one of the most consumed fish in the U.S., and that's depleting the fisheries. (Here are four canned fishes you should avoid at all costs.)

Subsequently, question is, what does steelhead fish taste like? Steelhead Flavor Profile. They have orange flesh like Salmon, but the flavor is milder like a cross between salmon & trout. The flesh has medium flakes and a tender texture. To me, wild Steelhead have a bit more “intense” salmon taste than farmed Steelhead.
