Hello,

Fish high in mercury content should be avoided or limited.  These include shark, tilefish, swordfish, and king mackerel.  Canned, chunk light tuna generally has a lower amount of mercury than other tuna, but still should only be eaten in moderation.

Sardines have a low mercury content, thus up to two 6oz servings per week is okay.

Best regards,

Dr. Downing
