Health Alert – Which fish to eat?

Fish is one of the most consumed food around the world. In winters, fried fish becomes the most eaten addition to one’s meal, especially with evening tea or dinner. I like fried fish and devour these whether purchased from the stores as ready made to fry or the one that my wife buys and prepare it at home for frying.

But eating fish can be harmful too as man of its species carry higher levels of mercury that can be dangerous for human body. Here is a thumb rule for eating fish and its frequency:

1. Eat as much as you can: Krill, Shrimp, Salmon, Pollock and Oyster.

2. Eat a few times a week: Tuna (canned), Trout and Mackerel (Spanish)

3. And beware of eating Shark, Pike, Halibut and Albacore – eat may be a few times a month.

I love fish, especially tuna and mackerel. My mum used to work in a processing factory so we always had a huge supply of fish, it was great

That was a good coincidence I s would say - you liked fish and your mother could get a lot of it. I like fish too, but mostly crisply fried and without bones.

I love cod, tuna, salmon and a few local varieties. Simply do not see value in eating shark.

I wish I liked fish more. I don't really eat much fish at all. I only really like it unhealthy forms i.e. battered and with chips! Even then I only have fish & chips when I go to the seaside.

And it depends on where the fish comes from. Farmed fish are full of drugs and are fed badly. The wild caught is healthier, yet some doctors advise eat only once a week. Now that shrimp are being grown inland in tanks, I hope more fish will be. That will make for a good clean fish supply.
