Personal Training Bellevue | Best Fish Choices

Without a doubt, wild caught salmon is a rich source of omega 3 fatty acids. Following closely are freshwater mussels, sardines, mackerel, and anchovies. Canned salmon and canned tuna (from smaller, younger fish) are also good choices. But let’s not leave out some of the other lesser-known fish, also rich in omega 3’s!

Flaky and buttery, this Asian sea bass is also a nutritional powerhouse. Look for this in your frozen seafood section under the name Australis.

Rainbow Trout
Milder in flavor than salmon, trout is full of high-quality protein, omega 3’s and phosphorous. Another benefit is that it’s extremely low in contaminants, due to the land-based tanks and raceways (channels that fish swim in) used by North American fish farmers.

Also known as black cod, slightly sweet and very meaty (think halibut), sablefish is extremely rich in omega-3 fatty acids! Look for fish caught in cold Alaskan waters where stocks are healthier. Usually easier to find frozen than fresh.

Arctic Char
Pink-fleshed and delicate in flavor, consumers love it because it lacks that ‘fishy’ flavor of many of its’ relatives. Coming from the icy waters of the north, char is also high in omega 3 fatty acids. Both farmed (Iceland and Canada) and wild char are considered planet friendly.

Also called Snapper, overfished on the west coast for years, it has rebounded in the past few decades and is now considered a ‘best choice’ by Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch. High in protein and the antioxidant selenium, rockfish is a great choice if you desire a delicate, flaky fish.
