Did you know that the USDA, designers of My Plate, suggests that it is important for adults to eat 8 ounces of seafood per week? The following information can be found on the USDA website regarding the health benefits of eating seafood:

Seafood contains a range of nutrients, notably the omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA. Eating about 8 ounces per week of a variety of seafood contributes to the prevention of heart disease. Smaller amounts of seafood are recommended for young children.

Eating healthy and nutritious foods is necessary for those who want to enjoy an active lifestyle. Eating healthy doesn’t mean eating bland and boring foods!

    Eating fish provides your body with a lot of good stuff. The only problem is that some fish also have some very very bad things in them too. And by that I mean mercury and PCBs.

    PCB is a shorthand for polychlorinated biphenyls, which are highly toxic industrial compounds.

    The EPA has some recommendations about how many servings of different types of fish it is advisable to eat for men, women and children. Some fish are best avoided entirely. You can find a list here:

    But there are other problems concerning fish too. Some are being over fished, others are caught using methods which destroy habitats, and still others are farmed using unsustainable methods.

    I’ve compiled my own list of fish that are good to eat, along with links that can help inform your decision to make your own list. Hopefully you find the below link helpful:
