How Much Fish to Eat?
The FDA recommends eating only one 7-ounce helping per week of large fish
such as shark and swordfish, and no more than 14 ounces per week for seafood
with lower levels of mercury.
They do however, warn pregnant women and women of childbearing age against
eating shark, swordfish, king mackerel, and tilefish, suggesting that they have
this type of fish no more than once a month. For other types of seafood, the
FDA considers up to 12 ounces of cooked fish per week a safe amount.
The Environmental Working Group advises pregnant women to eat no more than 6
ounces of tuna per month. They advise people to limit farmed salmon to no more
than 8 ounces a month, or eat wild or canned salmon instead.
