Fish Consumption
Eat fish, be smart

Seafood and fish are good for your heart and brain. Both are low in fat, high in protein, and rich in nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3's provide protection from heart disease and are an important brain food for you, your children, and your unborn child.

These fish consumption guidelines and advisories are designed to help you gain these health benefits while protecting you and your family from contaminants found in fish.

For more information about fish advisories in Oregon, or contaminants in fish and their health effects, call the Oregon Health Authority at 1-877-290-6767.
