FalFish - from Sea to Plate

For Your Good Health

We hope you enjoy eating quality fish and shellfish as much as we do but if that wasn't enough, research shows that eating fish regularly as part of a balanced diet really is good for you and it's not just us saying so. The Food Standards Agency (FSA) recommends that we all eat at least two portions of fish a week with one of these being an 'oily fish' such as Mackerel, Sardines, Sprat or Herring.

Why?  Here's a few reasons:

  • Many fish species are high in oils that contain the omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), precursors of eicosanoids that are known to reduce inflammation throughout the body, and are thought to have many health benefits
  • Fish is a good source of protein
  • Fish is a rich source of important minerals, vitamins and trace elements (eg Zinc)
  • Fish is easy to digest (and quick to cook too!)
  • Oily fish are rich in omega-3 fatty acids - these can help lower cholesterol
  • Scallops are also a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium and potassium - these nutrients are also beneficial for the cardiovascular system
