Our bodies do not produce omega-3 fatty acids so we must get them through the food we eat. Fish is an important source of omega-3 fatty acids. These essential nutrients keep our heart and brain healthy. Omega-3 fatty acids are particularly high in fatty fish like salmon, trout, sardines, herring, canned mackerel, canned light tuna, and oysters. Eating fish at least two times per week as part of a healthy diet is strongly recommended.
