The fattier the fish, the better they are.

Fact

It is true that fatty fish such as mackerel, salmon, sardines and herring contain high amounts of the heart-protecting omega 3 fatty acids. Although some fish in general contain more fat and therefore more omega 3 fatty acids, some fattier fish such as farmed salmon contain higher levels of PCBs - harmful chemicals .Therefore, instead of choosing a fattier fillet, look for wild fish which still offers a good source of omega 3 fatty acids.
