The global and European recommendations

The World Health Organisation recommends that we regularly eat fish (1-2 servings per week), and that servings should ideally provide omega 3 fatty acids. This is because omega 3 fatty acids are ‘essential’- they can’t be made in our body, so we have to eat them in our diet.

EFSA (the European Food Safety Agency) has given similar recommendations, by advising eating 1-2 servings of oily fish per week. However, because a variety of different fish species are consumed in different European countries, EFSA recommends that each country in Europe gives its own fish consumption advice.
