Tuna, Salmon & Sardines Review (Canned and Packaged)

Be careful with canned fish! Our tests showed which tuna, salmon, and sardines are best or worst based on amounts of beneficial omega-3s (EPA and DHA) and contaminants (mercury and arsenic). Differences among albacore (white), skipjack, and yellow tuna, as well as sockeye (red) and pink salmon, and sardines are revealed and explained in this new report.

DPA -- The Other Omega-3
Studies are showing that higher blood levels of DPA (an omega-3 fatty acid obtained from fish) are associated with healthier aging and reduced cardiovascular disease. Although a cause-and-effect relationship has not been established, if you’re interested in increasing DPA in your diet, we just published the amounts of DPA that we found in popular brands of canned tuna and salmon. Some had virtually no DPA, while others provided nearly 100 mg per serving. (Also see our Top Picks for Canned Tuna & Salmon.)
