What are the Nutritional benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids?

What (exactly) are the benefits of foods that are high in Omega-3 fatty acids?
I know that fish (cold water seafoods) are high in this nutrient.
I normally do eat a "balanced" diet (I eat more veggies & fresh fruits than meats.)
Thanks for feedback.
