It’s all pretty much frozen. Commercial fish operations flash freeze their catch often right on the boat before sending it to distributors, who then decide whether it’ll stay frozen for purchase or be thawed and presented “fresh” by the retailer. Nutritionally there’s not much difference between the two. As for taste, the majority of people in a Japanese study either favored frozen fish or couldn’t tell the difference between fresh and frozen.
Repeated freezing and thawing can ruin texture and taste, though.
Buying frozen fish is typically more affordable than buying fresh, and it gives you the opportunity to buy certain varieties that might not be available fresh in your area, particularly if you live in a part of the country where fresh fish isn’t readily available. Of course, there are also other factors to consider when making this decision.
Bottom line? Buy it in any form, but just eat it. The average American man eats about 1 1/4 ounces of omega 3 rich fish a week, according to Nutrition Journal.
That’s not even close to the 7 ounces the American Heart Association recommends.
Of course if you don’t like fish you could use supplements for your daily dose of omega 3. We recommend the omega 3 from Haya Labs. Read our Haya Labs review
