Best Types of Fish to Eat

Alaskan salmon

Farmed salmon is significantly cheaper, but it may contain less omega-3s and fewer vitamins and minerals.


This flaky white fish is a great source of phosphorus, niacin, and vitamin B-12. A 3-ounce cooked portion contains 15 to 20 grams of protein.


A fatty fish similar to sardines, herring is especially good smoked. Smoked fish is packed with sodium though, so consume it in moderation.


A tropical firm fish, mahi-mahi can hold up to almost any preparation. Because it s also called dolphinfish.


As opposed to leaner white fish, mackerel is an oily fish, rich in healthy fats. King mackerel is a high-mercury fish, so opt for the lower mercury.


Another white fish, perch has a medium texture and can come from the ocean or fresh water. Because of its mild taste, a flavorful panko breading goes.


Also an oily fish, sardines are rich in many vitamins. The canned version is easy to find, and it s actually more nutritious because you re consuming.

Striped bass

Either farmed or wild, striped bass is another sustainable fish. It has a firm yet flaky texture and is full of flavor.
