Overall seafood is very healthy for us, though in some cases we can risk exposure to harmful levels of toxins when certain types of seafood are eaten frequently. At the Seafood Watch program, we research fisheries and fish farming practices and their impact on the marine environment. Our printable seafood pocket guides and online seafood guide also include health consumption information from Environmental Defense Fund. By using the Seafood Watch pocket guides, consumers are supporting seafood that is healthy and sustainable for themselves and the environment. Our "Seafood and Your Health" fact sheet gives an overview of the benefits and risks of eating seafood and some suggestions for where to get additional information. Our Seafood and Public Health Resources section lists several organizations that provide in depth coverage of seafood and human health related topics.

Bar Harbor Herring and Mackerel products are some of the healthiest fish you can consume and can be a very tasty part of your diet. Visit our Recipe Page for a delicious party idea and substitute our Smoked Herring for Tuna in your favorite Tuna Fish Salad; you'll love the mild taste and know your getting a great source of natural Omega-3 and Calcium! Even kids love it!
