Americans consumed an average of 151⁄2 pounds of fish and shellfish in 2015—a 0.9-pound increase from the previous year, according to recent data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. That’s still about 101⁄2 pounds below the U.S. dietary guidelines, which recommends eating 8 to 12 ounces of seafood each week (equal to two to three meals a week).
Tops on your list of the healthiest choices are those with plenty of omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon. A recent rodent study published in the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology suggests that along with multiple other benefits (like healthy heart and fetal development) these polyunsaturated fats may help reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
