fish facts for families thumbnailEating fish remains excellent for your health. However, some precautions should be followed.

Women who are pregnant or may become pregnant soon, breastfeeding women and children should try not to eat high-mercury fish. We recommend eating 2 meals per week of low-mercury fish.

• Most store-bought canned and fresh fish are low in mercury. However, canned white tuna, fresh tuna, swordfish and shark should be avoided.
