Fish is the best thing that you can eat, it is a good source of protein and omega 3. The smaller the fish the healthier it is. Now with all the Fukishima radiation news going on, we are becoming more and more skeptical about eating fish. As per my nutritionist, its safe to eat fresh water fishes like tilpia, carp and smaller fish. So don't give up this healthy food.
