Salmon is a good source of healthy fats called omega-3.

Studies suggest that omega-3 fatty acids may have various health benefits like improved cardiovascular health, lower risk of cancer, and better cognitive function.

Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend eating about 8 ounces per week of a variety of seafood, including fish and shellfish.
