Finfish has traditionally been a
food that is eaten more often dur
ing the Lenten season. More recen
tly, fish has been recognized as a
nutritious food to eat weekly
because they have a good source of
protein and are generally low in
fat, calories, and sodium.
According to the Pennsylvania
State University, there is mounting
evidence that fish may have addi
tional health benefits.
Fish contain polyunsaturated
fats made up of omega-3 fatty
acids. Research suggests that these
omega-3 fatty acids may offer
some protection against heart dis
ease and certain disorders of the
immune system such as arthritis.
Many health food stores, phar
macies and supermarkets are sell
ing fish oil supplements containing
high levels of omega-3 fatty acids.
Although the research is promis
ing, most nutrition experts feel
there is still not enough evidence to
recommend the use of these sup
plements by the general public.
The effects of omega-3 fatty
acids on the body is not yet com
pletely understood and consump

of these oils may have unantici-

paled tide effects.
There are certain risks asso
ciated with consuming these sup
plements, such as excessive bleed
ing and serious bruising. Their use
may also increase the body’s
requirements for vitamin E. Since
there is no monitoring agency to
insure quality, they could be conta
. minated with dangerous chemicals
and toxic amounts of vitamins A
and D.
In addition, the supplements are
concentrated oils making them
very high in calories. Until there is
mote information about fish oil
supplements, it is best to use these
products only with medical
supervision.
Fish is still an excellent food
choice. The safer, cheaper, and
delicious way to obtain the health
benefits of omega-3 fatty acids is
to eat fish at least two times per
week.
The following are some com
mon fish that range from the best to
fair sources of omega-3 and total
polyunsaturated fat.
• EXCELLENT (two grams per
100 grams) - Atlantic mackerel,
spiny dogfish, herring, Atlantic
salmon, Chinook (King) salmon.
