Two portions a week

Due to the large numbers of essential nutrients contained in fish and shellfish, many experts recommend that we try to eat at least two portions of seafood every week.

This recommendation has been made by the Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (SACN), which advises the Food Standards Agency (FSA). The SACN also suggested that at least one of our weekly portions of seafood should be oil-rich, such as trout, mackerel or herring.
