Ask the Seavant: Omega-3s • Seafood Nutrition Partnership

Grilled Salmon with Asparagus and Salad

Scott Nichols of Food’s Future LLC stopped by to answer some of your toughest seafood questions.

Which fish is most abundant in omega-3s?

If there were a single champion of champions, it would be red or black caviar. Nothing else comes close.

But it doesn’t have to be the champion to be great. I divided my choices into two groups—those with strong flavors and those with mild flavors. In the strong category are: mackerel, anchovy, sardine, shad and oysters (Pacific oysters have higher omega-3s than Atlantic oysters but both are great sources). In the mild category are: salmon (all are good) halibut, sablefish (which also goes by black cod), pompano, trout and striped bass.
