How Much Fish is Safe to Eat

How many time should I eat fish?   

“…fish consumption doesn’t cause a health concern. In fact, most people don’t get enough fish in their diet. The American Heart Association recommends at least two, 3-ounce servings of fish – preferably omega-3-rich fish – each week. For most, especially those at risk of heart disease, the omega-3 benefits of eating fish probably outweigh potential risks…”

“…pregnant women and children may need to limit how much fish they eat to avoid…”

“…Avoid eating shark, swordfish, king mackerel or tilefish because they contain high levels of toxins…”

“…Eat up to 12 ounces a week of fish and shellfish that contain low levels of mercury – such as shrimp, canned light tuna, salmon, pollock and catfish. Canned albacore (”white”) tuna has higher levels of mercury than does canned light tuna…”

  

I have not eaten any of my own fish yet, but there getting close.
