What Is the Current Recommendation about Eating Fish When You Are Pregnant?

Despite the warning about fish, there’s no need to completely avoid it during pregnancy. Choose a variety of fish that is considered safe to eat. It’s perfectly fine to eat up to twelve ounces (two average meals) a week of fish and shellfish that are lower in mercury, including the following:

  • Canned light tuna
  • Catfish
  • Pollock
  • Salmon (farmed or wild)
  • Sardines
  • Shrimp
  • Tilapia

Limit albacore or white tuna to 6 ounces weekly.
