Top 10 Best and Worst Fish for Your Health

Make the Most of It

Healthy diet plans encourage you to eat fish. Experts recommend at least 8 ounces of seafood a week. Research says Americans average only about a third of that.

Not all fish are the same. So it’s important to know how to make sure you get the most out of what you eat.

Best: Fish High in Omega-3s

Found in fatty, oily fish, omega-3 fatty acids can help your heart in a number of ways. Just a couple of 4-ounce servings of seafood with them each week can lower your chances of heart disease by 36%. Omega-3s might make you less likely to have conditions like stroke and Alzheimer’s disease, too.

Good sources of these healthy acids include:

  • Salmon
  • Herring
  • Anchovies
  • Sardines
  • Trout
