BENEFITS OF FISH CONSUMPTION
Canada Food Guide recommends at least 2 servings (2.5 oz) of fish each week from among salmon, sardines, trout, herring and mackerel which are high in omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are necessary for central nervous system development throughout fetal and infant development stages. In adults, omega-3 reduces the incidence of death due to coronary heart disease. Note: If you like tuna, select “light” tuna which come from smaller species of the fish thus carrying less mercury.
