Choosing Healthy Seafood Fact Sheet
Written: 03/01/14


Fish are nutritious for you and your family. But some fish contain a harmful chemical called mercury. Women ages 18-45, especially those who are pregnant or breastfeeding, and children ages 1-17 should be selective about the types of fish they eat and avoid fish that are high in mercury. “Choosing Healthy Seafood” is a three-page fact sheet that provides guidelines on the types and amount of fish that are safe for people to consume. The fact sheet also provides information about the health benefits of eating fish. Use links below to access a printable (pdf) version of the fact sheet in English.
