I love Salmon and it is supposed to be safe but
my friend who lives in CA told me that it is not
safe at all. Along with tuna, king mackrel and Swordfish
and shark.

Anybody knows more which fish is actually safe
aside from sardines, herrings?

Hi,

Certain fish are ok in moderation.....I think Salmon is one of them but other fish should be totally avoided due to high levels of mercury.

Here is a link with info. on what fish you can eat and what fish to avoid.
http://www.swedish.org/17336.cfm

If you want info on any other foods and their saftey, just do a search using a search engine.....I use "Google". Type in the key words: "fish safety pregnancy" or " safe to eat fish pregnancy". You'll find tons of info.

You can always ask your obstetrician as well.

If you are worried about all of these foods being dangerous then you should ask your doctor. I have never heard of ANY vegtable being dangerous during pregnany. I think that is a bit rediculous. The think in certian fishes the thing that is dangerous to a developing fetus is Mercury. I'm pretty sure salmon is ok. Talk to your doctor about all this.

i have a leaflet on food safety during pregnancy and it says in there that seafood is ok as long as its hot and fresh, otherwise salmon and tuna from a can is ok too as long as its eaten the same day you open it, it cant be left in the fridge, otherwise ask your doctor or midwife

Shark is 1 to avoid totally because of high mercury also. but Tuna is fine, just no more then a can a week.(Or for me I wont eat tuna for a long time and then have it for 2 days straight, lol). Just limit your fish intake.

there is this huge article that salmon might not be as safe as thought,
especially farm raised an that from Europe even worse.

I just found this article I am posting this link to it and a fragment below:

http://health.yahoo.com/ate/drweil/alld ... 1/20040113

follow the link for more info

The general findings are shocking: the expert commission found that the total organic contaminants were consistently and significantly more concentrated in the farmed salmon as a group than in wild salmon. This includes dioxins and PCBs - both believed to increase the risk of certain cancers and to be harmful to the developing brains of fetuses and infants of women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. The average dioxin level in farm-raised salmon was 11 times higher than in wild salmon, and the average PCB levels were 36.6 parts per billion (ppb) in farm-raised salmon, versus 4.75 ppb in wild salmon. The study also connected the levels of contaminants to location: farmed salmon from Europe were more contaminated than that from North or South America. The most contaminated farmed samples came from Scotland and the Faroe Islands in the North Atlantic, and the least contaminated farmed samples came from Chile and Washington State in the U.S. However even the least-contaminated farmed salmon still had significantly higher contaminant levels than wild salmon.
