More and more leading nutritionists agree that fish is a very important part of a healthy diet. Fish and other seafood are the primary sources of ultra-healthy long-chain omega-3 fats and are also rich in other nutrients such as vitamin D and selenium. Fish and other seafood are also high in protein, and low in saturated fat. Studies have shown good evidence that eating fish is beneficial for the heart and blood vessels. The general consensus gathered from a variety of studies and research shows that 2-3 servings of seafood a week is ideal for the average individual.
Scientific studies demonstrate that the Icelandic fishing grounds are virtually free from pollution and that Icelandic seafood is particularly wholesome and nutritious. The uncontaminated condition of Icelandic seafood is due Iceland’s unique location remote from industrial nations, its small population and a relatively pollutant-free occupational structure.
