Pregnancy and eating fish: which types of fish are safe?

  1. When you are pregnant you have to pay close attention to what you eat. An overview of which types of fish are and which are not good to eat should therefore not be missing. Tuna is on the safe side of the border on many lists. However, a leading US research firm has changed its position on tuna. The warning applies in particular to canned tuna. It is much better to eat other types of fish during pregnancy such as salmon, shrimp, tilapia, pollock, herring and flounder.

Pregnancy and eating tuna

  1. There is a lot of disagreement among scientists about eating tuna during pregnancy. Where one mentions tuna in the list of fish species that contain little methylmercury, the other places it in the list of risky species because of the mercury level. Because there are so many different types of tuna, it is sometimes difficult to make a good distinction. For example, albacore tuna is better to eat than yellowfin tuna
