I was thinking of eating fish with my daily salad at lunch, every other day switching with canned sardines and canned wild salmon. So like 4 times sardines, 3 times salmon, give or take..
The shorter the life span of a fish, the less mercury is able to build up over time. Wild Alaska salmon do have one of the shortest life spans, but this doesn’t mean they contain no mercury.
I don’t think anyone would agree that having fish 7 days a week is beneficial to your health. I wouldn’t want to eat any type of fish more than 3 times in a week, 4 at the very most and this would depend on the species and quantity.
Could you not substitute eggs a few times a week?
