Fish is a great source of high-quality protein and healthy fat.
This is particularly true of fatty fish, such as salmon, which is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids and various other nutrients (1).
Studies show that people who eat the most fish have a lower risk of several conditions, including heart disease, dementia, and depression (2, 3, 4).
