Some of the Best Seafood to Eat

If you are a lover of fish but wonder what is the best seafood to eat, you will find the six best that you can eat chosen by Seafood Watch. These are the main fish that are the healthiest for you to eat and are even considered “Super Green”.

Albacore tuna hits the top of this list. A lot of tuna is high in mercury but not the albacore. This is the most commonly canned tuna as well and it gets a top rating for being a super food and extremely healthy to eat. The healthiest of this group of tuna are from the US and British Columbia.

The next one would be salmon that is wild caught in Alaska. Alaska has one of the world's best managed salmon fisheries and they even have biologists posted at the mouths of all their rivers to count how many wild fish come back each year to spawn. When it dwindles, the fishery is closed. While closely monitoring the fish they also monitor the health of the water to make sure that the salmon are as healthy as they can be.

Farmed oysters are another healthy choice for best seafood to eat. They are very high in omega-3s and they are actually good for the environment because they feed off the nutrients and algae in the water which in turn improves the quality of the water.

The Pacific wild caught sardine is making a big splash as a super food. It is packed with omega-3s, in fact they have more than a 3 ounce serving than tuna or salmon. They are also very high in vitamin D. The Pacific sardines luckily have rebounded from being over fished and from a near natural collapse back in the 1940s.

Even though Rainbow Trout is not a seafood it is on the list of one of the healthiest fish for consumption. The best would be the farmed versions for they are totally protected from any contaminants and are fed a healthy fish meal diet that is fine tuned to conserve on their resources.

Then there is finally the Coho Salmon which is a farmed in tank systems fish and it is the only farmed salmon that got a Super Green rating. Coho are raised in closed fresh water pens that are not over crowded and they require less food to raise so this also is less of a burden on the environment. They are a great source of omega-3s as well.
