    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
    • Salmon
    • Sardines
    • Albacore tuna
    • Herring

    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.
