Low mercury choices

Updated: Apr 27, 2020

Eating a variety of different fish species is a good way to gain the nutritional benefits without consuming too much mercury 🐟


This compound accumulates in the body and can especially disrupt the nervous system and certain organs.


Large predatory fish contain the most. A sensible choice of species that can be consumed is important to maintain a proper intake of precious omega 3 fatty acids.

Santé Canada recommends that we eat 2 servings of 75g (2 1/2 oz) of fish per week.

Here some of the least contaminated species:

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

▫️salmon (preferably wild to avoid other contaminants)

▫️salmon trout

▫️herring

▫️mackerel

▫️sardines

▫️skipjack canned tuna
