How many times a week or month, or YEAR do you eat "fish" (any type of sea food).

Supposedly it is healthier then beef/chicken to eat "seafood" about twice a week, so we are told. I don't know anyone who actually does.

DO you?

I never eat sea food. I've never liked it. My fiance likes fish, however he very rarely eats it.

I eat it about once a week. Depends where you live--it's easier on the coasts to get fresh seafood. It can also be expensive.

I don't think eating just any seafood is healthy--I think the twice a week number comes from the benefit of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fish oils, but you can also get the benefit from taking fish oil capsules. But it's oily fish that are best, and small oily fish like sardines and herring are the least harmful for the environment and depletion of the oceans while also lowest in mercury. Large predator fish are high in mercury which isn't healthy, therefore consumption of swordfish, marlin, and some tuna should be avoided or minimized.

So I think the seafood choice is complicated. Shellfish like shrimp, crab, and lobster don't do much for health, some fish are too high in mercury, many wild fish are overfished and populations are being depleted, and most farmed fish pollute the oceans or other water sources and are fed feed made from other depleted fish species.

The best fish to eat would probably be sardines because they are low in mercury, are not being depleted from the oceans as fast, and they have lots of healthy fish oils. But they don't appeal to many people because the healthy fish oils give them a strong fishy flavor and odor, and because they aren't huge filets of fish steak that people crave.

I could eat seafood every night. We eat it about 3 times a week.

It's hard anymore, especially because I refuse to eat lobster because of the over fishing (they keep getting smaller and smaller, making people need more and more of them, making them get smaller and smaller...) and I refuse to eat farmed fish. Did you know that there is no such thing as 'Atlantic Salmon' anymore? If a package says that they're from a fish farm in the Atlantic, because we have completely killed all of the wild salmon over there.

I've been working more fish (usually tilapia or some other less expensive fish) into my diet as a healthy meat, so I'd say I have some sort of fish or seafood a few times a month. I love seafood and would eat it more often (especially shellfish or salmon) if it didn't cost so much.

I hate all fish/seafood and don't eat it, period. My boyfriend likes some but doesn't eat it very often, tuna sandwiches most commonly.

Oh I have been eating seafood at least once a week. I am fortunate enough to live in Florida and I have found a wonderful wholesale fish market that is cheap!

I eat fish several times a week. It's my source of protein, because I keep kosher, and finding kosher meat can sometimes be a challenge. But I love it--salmon patties, sushi, grilled trout...I actually probably eat it more often than I should.
