How Much Seafood Should You Eat

Two Fish Meals a Week

Eating fish at least twice weekly offers total body benefits.

How much seafood should you eat each week? According to the USDA, two is the magic number.

The USDA’s 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend we eat at least eight ounces—or two servings—of a variety of seafood per week as part of a nutritious 2,000 calorie-per-day diet that includes 250 mg. per day of omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA.

Plus, The American Heart Association [AHA] says fish consumption not only decreases heart disease risks, but also contains valuable vitamins and unsaturated healthy fatty acids.

And it’s deliciously easy to enjoy the recommended amount each week. Every 3-ounce serving of fresh or frozen salmon provides 1.1 to 1.9 g of total omega-3, according to the AHA.
