Too few fish in the ocean to keep humans in good health

The Observer

By Denis Campbell

The official advice that Britons should eat more fish as a health benefit may be altered amid growing fears that the policy is threatening efforts to conserve diminishing stocks of cod and other popular species.
The Food Standards Agency currently recommends that everyone should eat at least two portions of fish a week, including one of oily fish such as salmon, mackerel and sardines as the omega-3 fatty acids and minerals found in fish can help combat heart disease.
