EATING FISH OR SUSHI WHILE PREGNANT
While there are some fish that are high in mercury you should avoid, such as shark, swordfish, king mackerel, tuna and tilefish, there are many species of fish that are perfectly okay to consume. Fish that are safe (low in mercury) and healthy (high in omega-3 fatty acids) to consume include salmon, anchovies, herring, sardines, trout, Atlantic or Pacific mackerel, cod and canned light tuna.
