How much fish should we be eating?

The global and European recommendations

 

Fish nutritional value

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.

Canada Food Guide has given similar recommendations, by advising eating 2 servings of  fish per week.
