  • Most fish you can in moderation. You want to be aware of the mercury level in the fish though.
    However, these ones should be avoided:
    * Shark
    * Swordfish
    * King mackerel
    * Tilefish

    Also prepared fish carries a higher risk of infection, so you want to avoid it too. Like in salads and the like.

  • And remember no undercooked or uncooked fishies...What a bummer that was when they told me no sushi.

  • Fish, you have to be careful...some are worse than others and you can't eat alot of it, shrimp is fine.
