How often do YOU eat fish?

You’re probably already aware that you’re supposed to eat your weekly doses of fish. Studies even found that one or two 3oz servings of fatty fish each week can lower your risk of heart disease by 36%. Fish are a healthy and lean source of protein.

And the oily kinds, like salmon, sardines, tuna, and mackerel, deliver those omega-3 fats your heart and brain love. But then there’s also this concern about our environment and choosing sustainable seafood.

Also, let’s not forget that some fish are healthier than others, and some are downright hazardous if eaten in excess. So, if you’re like us, you often stand at the fish counter a little confused: “What’s good for me AND mother nature?”

We did some digging to find the healthiest fish you could eat when it comes to nutritional benefits and mercury content. So check out the truth about what you should eat… Plus, what fish should you avoid?

  1. You said nothing about a great eating fish, the Catfish!!
    It is a lot more delicious with out a smell like some that you mentioned!!

  2. All Atlantic salmon are farm raised.
    Shrimp and catfish from the orient are raised in filthy farm Ponds where they are usually feed pig and human feces.
    Mackerel are great smoked, as are also catfish or any other oily fish. Usually fish are soaked in a salty brine before smoking. But you can also immediately smoke fish on your bar b que grill without using a brine.
    The best canned sardines I’ve ever found are by far King Oscars. I’ve never found a canned sardine that can compare
    My biggest let down in canned fish is Starkist tuna.
    Ever since they stopped canning tuns in American Samoa and moved to Thailand there canned tuna is like cat food. It looks like the scrap meat that is left over after the chunks have been used elsewhere.
    Pelosi owns a lot of stock in Starkist, and I would not be surprised if she had something to do with the move!
