Get to Know Your Fish

From Japan to Scandinavia, people who eat fish as their main source of animal protein have been famously healthy.

The heart-healthy perks of omega-3 fats in cold-water fish like salmon and tuna continue to be confirmed by research. Yet concerns about pollution and overfishing may scare away fish-lovers.
