Lean Fish Provide Omega 3

8 February 2012, at 12:00am

NORWAY - Lean fish is an underestimated source of omega 3, shows a new study.

Salmon, herring, mackerel - oily fish are the pre-known sources of omega 3. A new study now documents that there may be good reasons to add cod and pollock on the plate.

"We think of fishing in general as healthy. But strictly speaking, we have not much evidence that lean fish is good for health," says researcher at NIFES, Lisbeth Dahl.

The new study, published in the journal Lipids are thus among the first diet surveys showing that the lean fish can provide us with DHA, one of the important omega-3 fatty acids. DHA is particularly important for brain and eye to develop and function optimally.
