A recent study in Australia has shown that eating fish with Omega-3s may very well be more beneficial to general heart health and well-being than dosing up on supplements.
The study published in Nutrition and Dietetics, the Dietitians Association of Australia's journal, compared the effect of long chain omega-3 oils from fresh salmon and fish oil capsules on heart disease risk factors.
The study featured 11 heart disease patients from St Vincent's Hospital in Melbourne. It showed that eating fish twice a week could be more effective in lowering blood pressure than popping a fish oil pill. Both the fish and the capsules increased the 'omega-3 index' to the level thought to be linked with a lower risk of dying from heart disease. However, eating fish, but not fish oil capsules, was also linked with a marked reduction in blood pressure.

As things stand, the only UK fishing company operating in these distant waters, the Hull-based UK Fisheries with its two fishing vessels, currently has no fishing opportunities on its traditional distant waters from 1st of January next year.
‘If we lose our distant waters fishing industry, the irony of the government’s aspiration to become a proudly independent coastal state will not be lost voters of the ‘red wall’ in the north-east of England,’ commented Jane Sandell of UK Fisheries.
