How Much Seafood Should I Eat?

I have been getting this question a lot lately…

How much seafood should I eat?


Which fish are richest in healthy omega-3 fatty acids, lowest in mercury contamination and sustainably produced?

If you visit most government and standard public health websites, you will be hard pressed to find the information. Fortunately, I am here to share a fantastic resource —, the Environmental Working Group. This non-profit organization has done extensive analysis of the latest scientific research on seafood, omega-3’s and mercury.

Use EWG’s Seafood Calculator at the right to get your custom seafood list – based on your age weight and more – or click here to see EWG’s general recommendations.
