Health from the Water

Fish - many like it and some avoid it. Fish lovers enjoy the diversity that our seas, lakes and rivers offer. Fried or grilled fish brings the summer holiday into everyday life. The wonderful fragrance can put some thought into a restaurant with sea views. But it convinces its fans not only in smell and taste, but also because of many other properties.

What fish can do

Everyone has heard it before: fish is healthy. Why?

Fish is rich in iodine, selenium and vitamins D, B1, B2, B6 and B12. A good source of vitamin D is, for example, herring and mackerel. This vitamin supports bone formation and affects the immune system. It is barely present in food, most of it is absorbed by sunlight. Plenty of vitamin B1, which is important for our nervous system, is provided by plaice and tuna.

Another plus: Many fish - as well as high-quality vegetable oils, olives, nuts and seeds - are rich in omega-3 fatty acids. These have a positive effect on hypertension and heart disease.

If you want to pay attention to your line, then you should replace meat and sausage with fish. A small comparison: 100g salmon fillet have 131 kcal - 100g beef fillet have 290 kcal.

That's why the nutritionists advise eating fish 1 to 2 times a week.

The right choice makes the difference

If you go through the shelves or look at a menu, you quickly realize that fish lovers are much more attracted to marine fish than domestic freshwater fish. If you do not choose a regional organic fish, you can better access MSC-certified fish. Because the fish population is in great danger today. The blue MSC seal of quality stands for "Marine Stewardship Council". It is an international, independent and not-for-profit organization. It guarantees that no more fish are caught than is environmentally friendly for our seas. If you pay attention to this seal, you can enjoy fish - without a guilty conscience. Incidentally, the online fish guide from WWF provides a quick overview.
