Fish has many health benefits, in part due to the omega-3 fatty acids y.  The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) state that people who regularly consume diets high in fish tend to have lower risks of a range of conditions, including cardiovascular disease, stroke, and macular degeneration, and dementia in older adults.
