It seems another myths for pregnancy. According to scientific researches, not all the fishes are suitable for pregnanct women. Some fishes contain a high level of mercury which is very harmful for mother and the fetus. Some farm-raised fish may be contaminated with PCB's (cancer-causing agents) and other toxins. It is recommended that up to 12 ounces a week of wild salmon (not farm-raised), sea bass, shrimp, sole, snapper, flounder, catfish, cod, haddock, sardines, tilapia, ocean perch, and pollack are safe for the preganant. Canned or shelf-stable salmon is also safe. Remember to avoid swordfish, shark, king mackerel, tilefish, refrigerated smoked seafood such as lox, trout, and whitefish (unless cooked as an ingredient in another dish).
