Why it’s so important to eat fish for good health.

Fish and other seafood are a wonderful natural source of lean protein, as well as unsaturated fats, nutrients, vitamins and minerals that are essential for good health and our well being.

Health and nutrition experts agree that eating at least 2 servings of fish and other seafood every week will provide your body with important health benefits that should not be underestimated. Eating seafood, provides lean protein and heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Plus vital minerals calcium, phosphorus, iron, zinc, iodine and magnesium - of which many of us aren’t getting enough. Caught & Delivered are enthusiastic about eating for enjoyment and for good health - we believe fish and seafood are delicious to eat and, so good for you and your family!

Omega-3 fatty acids


Omega-3 fatty acids are incredibly important and linked to many health benefits. Omega-3s have been shown to reduce inflammation, improve heart health and circulation, and even improve cognitive function. Eating quality fish and seafood is the most natural way to make sure your body gets the omega-3’s it needs. It’s worth doing your research into this fascinating subject, here are a few stand-out likely benefits of having omega-3’s in your weekly diet. 

Several decades of observational research have consistently shown that higher fish intakes are associated with a reduction in risk of conditions such as heart attacks, strokes, and all-cause mortality.


At Caught & Delivered, when we see a beautifully baked whole fish, it fills our hearts with joy! And it appears that eating fish could be having a positive effect on the health of our hearts too. Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish are an unsaturated fat, the type of fat that’s good for our cholesterol levels. EPA and DHA omega-3’s can help protect the heart and blood vessels from disease by; lowering triglycerides, improving circulation, preventing blood clots, lowering blood pressure and keeping the rhythm of your heart steady. Eating fish at least twice a week has many benefits and helping to keep your heart healthy could well be one of the most important.


Getting enough omega-3s during pregnancy and early life is crucial for a child’s development. The best way to encourage young children to eat fish is to lead by example, how about trying our lovely Fish Pie recipe. Another great meal idea for young families is fishcakes. Make with mash potato and our cod supremes - children love finger-food so try serving them with a choice of dips and some carrot and cucumber sticks. Let us know how you get on, and if we can share your recipe with our community.


Omega-3’s can also help relieve some symptoms of depression and anxiety. Salmon, mackerel and tuna contain high levels of Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) which appears to be the most beneficial of the omega-3’s for improving our mental health. Feeling good is so important, so anything to improve our mood has to be a good thing. Make the whole family happy with our farmed salmon supremes. Boneless, extra thick and of exceptional quality.They’re so flavoursome, you can simply roast them in the oven and serve with a zesty salad or your favourite vegetables.


Looking after our eyes (excuse the pun) is something we can take for granted when we’re young. But it’s worth considering, that by eating well now, we could reduce the risk of eye conditions in later life. Such as macular degeneration, which can sadly cause vision impairment and blindness. There are other factors, but what we do know, is that Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), is a major structural component of the retina of your eye. Oily fish such as salmon, tuna and trout has this amazing omega-3 acid in abundance.
