Want to eat fish? Fish are a great choice for serving up lean protein with plenty of vitamins and minerals. Fish also are a natural source of omega-3 fatty acids – a good kind of fat, according to the Minnesota Department of Health. The agency adds that the benefits of eating fish outweigh the risks when eating fish low in mercury and other contaminants.
So how do you find out about mercury and other contaminants? Fish consumption guidance for Minnesota waters is available online, including general and site-specific guidance. And ChooseYourFish.org is another source for information that can help you decide which fish to eat, and even has recipes and resources showing how to cook fish.
