Why is eating fish healthy?
Fish is a high protein, low fat food that provides a range of health benefits. White meat fish, in particular, have less fat than any other animal protein, while oily fish are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, or “good” fats. Because the body does not produce large amounts of these essential nutrients, fish is an important part of the diet. In addition, fish are low in the “bad” fats commonly found in red meat, called omega-6 fatty acids.

Why are omega-3s good for your health?
There is growing evidence that omega-3 fatty acids have many health benefits. They:
• Helps maintain cardiovascular health by regulating blood clotting and vasoconstriction;
• Very important for prenatal and postnatal neurodevelopment;
• Can reduce tissue inflammation, reduce the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis;
• It may play a beneficial role in arrhythmias (arrhythmias), reducing depression and preventing mental decline in the elderly.
The omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) found in fish seem to offer the biggest health benefits. Omega-3 fatty, environmentally friendly fish include:
• wild salmon from Alaska (fresh, frozen and canned),
• Arctic char,
• Atlantic mackerel,
• farmed rainbow trout and
• albacore tuna from the U.S. and Canada.
