Healthy eating with The Fisherman's Wife

At The Fisherman's Wife we believe eating fish is a smart choice. Researchers worldwide have discovered that eating fish regularly, one or two servings a week, may reduce the risk of a variety of diseases. Healthy eating is important and fish is low in fat, high in protein and an excellent source of omega 3 fatty acids.


Selected research findings indicate the following:

  • Brain and eyes - fish rich in omega 3 fatty acids can contribute to the health of brain tissue and the retina (the light sensitive tissue lining the inner surface of the eye).

  • Cardiovascular disease - eating fish every week reduces the risk of heart disease by reducing blood clots and inflammation, improving blood vessel elasticity, lowering blood pressure, lowering blood fats and boosting 'good' cholesterol.

  • Dementia - elderly people who eat fish or seafood at least once a week may have a lower risk of developing dementia, including Alzheimer's disease.

  • Diabetes - fish may help people with diabetes manage their blood sugar levels.

  • Eyesight - breastfed babies of mothers who eat fish have better eyesight, perhaps due to the omega 3 fatty acids transmitted in breast milk.

  • Inflammatory conditions - regular fish consumption may relieve the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis and autoimmune disease.
