The group above might help you. You should not feed fish and nothing but, but fish is fine for one of your meat varieties. My cats love salmon, the skin and all.

Pacific Salmon have lung flukes that can be neutralized by freezing the meat for several weeks before feeding it. Internet sources will say to freeze any where from one to three weeks. I play it safe and freeze for at least three weeks.

I don't know what other species of fish might also have lung fluke but Atlantic Salmon don't.

All fish might have mercury, PCBs and any number of contaminants in them. BC may have a guide book on how many of what size fish from which waters are safe for people to eat, that could be a guide for you. I'm in Ontario where the provincial gov't puts out Guide to Eating Sport Fish. BC may have something similar.
