Fish You Should Avoid - COMPLETELY

Everyone who reads this blog should know by now that National Resources Defense Council recommends that we limit our consumption of certain types of fish.
What many of us may not be away of is that a few specific kinds of fish should be avoided entirely, according to every major health organization that has studied the issue (source).

Even fish with high levels of mercury like canned albacore tuna can be eaten less than 3 times a month, but these fish should be avoided entirely:

  • King Mackerel
  • Marlin
  • Orange Roughy 
  • Shark
  • Swordfish
  • Tilefish
  • Ahi and Bigeye Tuna
