If you’re trying to include more fish in your diet, does shellfish count?

Or is that something entirely different? You know… shrimp, crab, lobster, mussels, clams… do they have the same nutrition benefits like omega-3 fatty acids and whatnot as regular fish?

  1. RAW Foods Says:

    Shellfish have less Omega-3 than Salmon.
    Shrimp, crab, lobster, oyster, mussels and clams are scavengers. Meaning they are the ones that eat all the yucky stuff in the ocean. 🙂
    They tend to raise blood pressure and cholesterol. They also may cause Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning (PSP). If I were you, I would stick with fish like Alaskan Salmon, and Tilapia, and stay away from tuna and sword fish, and all the shellfish, these have high levels of mercury.

    Try flax seed oil, this oil has not only Omega-3, but Omega 3-6-9!

    Good luck! 🙂
