What are The Healthiest Fish to Consume?

At PJ Lobster House, we take great pride in the food we serve. Seafood is not only consumed across the globe but is one of the healthiest things you can consume. Low in fat and containing high concentrations of protein, several medical studies have attested to the beneficial nature of food harvested from the ocean. The AHA (American Heart Association) recommends that adults get two to three servings of fish a week to promote and maintain a healthy heart. We’ve done some research on which species of fish are the healthiest.

Salmon is considered by many to be one of the healthiest species of fish. Rich in protein and almost completely free of fat, salmon also contains rich amounts of niacin, selenium, and phosphorus. 


Herring is one of the healthiest types of fish and also one of the most abundant. Herring contains high concentrations of iron, calcium, and b vitamins that stimulate the human brain. 

Mahi Mahi 

Much like salmon, Mahi Mahi contains rich deposits of selenium and phosphorus, has a considerable amount of protein and is almost completely fat-free. Mahi Mahi is very tender and easy to prepare. Many people enjoy it with rice. 

Spanish Mackerel 

Similar to tuna, Spanish mackerel contains plenty of fatty acids known as Omega-3. These are essential components for the health of the human heart. Other benefits of this fish are high magnesium, potassium, niacin, and phosphorus concentrations. 

Striped Bass 

Many seafood fans insist that bass is one of the most delicious fish on the market. Aside from its incredible taste, the bass is rich in b vitamins and protein. Many people who work out on a regular basis enjoy bass as it’s also rich in magnesium and niacin. 


Trout is one of the most abundant species of fish on the planet and very popular in the United States. A healthy dose of protein accompanied by vitamin A & D makes it a healthy fish. Like salmon and tuna, trout has a decent amount of omega-3s and is also low in fat. 

Ahi Tuna 

Ahi tuna will soon become your new favorite if you’re a fan of sushi or fish served raw. Rich in protein, selenium, thiamin, and niacin, many enjoy eating ahi tuna either lightly pan-seared or raw with rice.
