fish - introduction
Man has eaten fish since the beginning of our species, making it one of our most natural food sources. The variety is immense both in terms of fish from the sea and from our rivers, lakes and reservoirs. Shellfish are harvested all over the world and provide a rich palette of flavours, textures and nutritional values.

fish - nutrition
Fish is very rich in protein and vitamins, particularly A and D. Different types of fish also add a wide spectrum of Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids (PUFAs) to our diet, particularly omega-3, which is much in the news lately. It almost seems like there is a weekly update from the science community on newly discovered benefits of omega-3, which is now being added to all sorts of foods like spreads, yoghourts and breakfast cereals. However, the most important natural source is oily fish.
Regular consumption of fish can reduce the risk of various diseases and disorders. Selected research findings include:
fish - seafish
The sea provides the vast majority of the fish that we eat. Mostly, fish are broadly classified by their habitat, with pelagic fish like mackerel, herring and sprats swimming close to the surface while demersal fish such as cod, haddock, plaice and sole sticking close to the seabed. Naturally this variation in habitat leads to a wide variance in the character of the fish on our plates.
With fish oils being rich in omega-3, many health experts recommend eating fish at least twice a week and taking a balance of white and oily fish. Here are some examples of white fish:
