Fish is complete source of protein, Omega 3s, essential minerals 

There are many reasons why seafood is good for you. Fish is a healthy lean protein option with very little saturated fat.

Researchers have shown that eating fish stopped people feeling hungry sooner than other protein foods such as beef and chicken.

Current dietary guidelines encourage Americans to increase their seafood intake to twice per week, or at least eight ounces of a variety of seafood each week. With so many varieties of fish, mollusks and shellfish, seafood also is the most versatile protein available, and cooking with healthy seafood recipes has never been easier. Read on to learn why seafood is good for you.
