As passionate lovers of food, it's exciting to see our culture going through an evolution of the food we eat. Eating well has become a mainstream aspirations for many Australians, and with that has come a multicultural blend of old and new. We now expect produce to not only be fresh and high quality, but also clean and environmentally responsible.
For many of us, fish has always been an aspirational product that has been at the heart of good cuisine. Wherever we may be, seafood has always represented a food for celebration in the world of food. In yesteryear, the Sunday roast was the "special meal" of the week, and today, that seems to have been replaced by lobster, oysters, prawns and fish. And in a day and age where mainstream society wants to eat more without tipping the scales, fish appeals as the ideal food to assist with our health problems.
As we become more educated about the benefits of fish, expectations and demand of it increases exponentially. This runs the very real risk of overfishing, and with that comes the potential for catastrophic effects this has on nature and mankind.
At Famous Fish, we are well aware of the risks and danger that unsustainable over fishing can have on our environment and for our children, and this is a moral and social responsibility we are well aware of. We are committed to doing the right thing by the seas that sustain us by ensuring that our products are always sustainably caught.
That's why at Famous Fish, we take seafood and its origins very seriously. We make conscious decisions about the seafood we source, and will never sell fish that is not sustainably caught. We will always consider the legacy we leave to our children because we want them to inherit sustainable oceans. That's our choice, and we ask you to do the same. Choose sustainability, treat it with the same importance you give food safety.
Leading health authorities will tell you to simply eat more fish. Why? Because it's proven to be a high in protein, low-fat food with a wide range of other health benefits. It's so simple really, but this is probably the most powerful change that you can make in your diet. White-fleshed fish, in particular, is lower in fat than any other source of animal protein, and oily fish are high in omega-3 fatty acids, or the "good" fats. Since the human body can't make significant amounts of these essential nutrients, fish are an important part of the diet. Fish are low in the "bad" fats commonly found in red meat, called omega-6 fatty acids.
There's lots of research on the power of fish to prevent heart disease. This means fatty fish that are high in Omega-3 fatty acids like Salmon can actually treat heart disease! For example, a study compared 229 women who had already been diagnosed with heart disease. Researchers tracked whether the participants ate two or more servings of any kind of fish each week. After three years, the results showed that those who ate more fish had less progression of their heart disease. There are even studies that show that fish plays a major role in the prevention of cancers, including kidney, skin and colon cancers
To get the full benefits of all of the goodness in fish, it is recommended that an average person should consume fish two to three times per week.
