This is AWESOME!  As a native New Englander, I have been eating (and loving) fish from a very young age!  Hopefully it will keep those neurons firing.

ABJoe, I wonder how grass fed beef fits in the mix?

Given the fact that I am toxic in lead and mercury, I also have to manage my fish intake to try to stick to the fish that are considered low in mercury.  So while I love tuna, which the study recommends, I only eat it on occasion.

This paragraph sounds like a reasonable summary... Bold in quote is mine.

Excellent sources of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) include flaxseeds and walnuts. Very good sources of ALA include sardines and salmon, as well as cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and mustard seeds. Good sources include a wide variety of vegetables (collard and turnip greens, spinach, kale, green beans, romaine lettuce, summer squash, and winter squash), fish (scallops, shrimp, and cod), legumes and foods made from legumes (soybeans, tofu, and miso), and fruits (strawberries and, raspberries). While seafood is known for its EPA and DHA content, smaller amounts of ALA are provided by numerous seafoods. While not ranked on our Rating System Chart, animal foods including beef, dairy, and eggs may also provide varying amounts of ALA. Outside of the U.S., one study in Britain found that about 25% of ALA intake in the UK population came from fish and meat dishes, with another 8% from eggs and dairy foods. While we do not have a similar study from the U.S., we do know that the quantity of ALA in animal foods depends on the diet consumed by the animals. As a general rule, animals raised in a natural setting throughout their lives and pasture-fed on a variety of grasses, legumes, and other plants will contain more ALA in their bodies, and will therefore provide food that is richer in ALA, eicosapentaenioc acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Seafood is the food group most concentrated in EPA and DHA.

Have you read that if the fish contains more selenium than mercury, you don't have to worry about the mercury as the selenium chelates it and carries it out? I eat a lot of wild planet albacore both because of the way t tastes as well as Wild Planets practices. They only use small tuna which naturally has less mercury, they only cook it once so the oils remain intact and pole and troll caught. It has 3350mg omega 3 per can. Our Costco recently got it and it's $2.50 a can. Stores sell it for $5. I also eat a lot of Alaskan canned  salmon. Mercury is not detectable in canned salmon. In the end, there is NO perfect food. Something to question with everything. I just know my body likes it!

No, Mother, I had not heard about the mercury - selenium connection.  Wow! The power of nature!

I'm not so much into canned fish, having an abundance of fresh fish at my fingertips, but when I do eat it, I too like the Wild Planets brand.  We usually hit one of the local fish markets two to three times per week and buy fresh fish for that evening.  Never frozen, always wild caught.  I live in a coastal fishing city and we have at least four good fish markets that I know of.  Plus most of the regular grocery stores get their fish from here as well.  Why pay the shipping costs!

I hear you Patty!
I know you only eat two meals a day and I eat three so the canned fish is often my lunch fish with lemon infused EVOO sea salt and pepper but my dinners are usually fresh cod, salmon, trout etc. Google selenium and mercury or visit Chris  Kressers site about it. Actually it's everywhere. I fear not mercury in fish anymore. The ones with LESS mercury are shark, mackerel, etc. Don't eat those. It changed my whole outlook, and fish still I brain food and it is still better to eat it than supplement it.

Shark and mackerel are high in mercury.  Perhaps more was intended instead of less in the sentence above.

Or it meant to say less selenium relative to the mercury.

In any case not eating these high mercury fish is probably a good idea.
