People who eat fish often have lower heart disease rates. Based on this, the American Heart Association recommends that people eat fish 2 to 3 times each week. Good fish to consider include:
- Lake trout
- Albacore tuna
Mercury is increasingly common in many sea fish. To protect yourself, eat no more than 12 ounces a week of these fish: halibut, sea bass, swordfish, mackerel, grouper, red snapper, and orange roughy.
