Where can I look up the amount of omega-3 in unit weight of monkfish? I would like to compare that to mackerel. Thanks.
A Google search offered me this site in German, which gives the following values for EPA and DHA (the two Omega-3 fatty acids) :
- Monkfish: 49 mg EPA + 212 mg DHA = 261 mg per 100 g fish
- Mackerel: 588 mg EPA + 739 mg = 1327 mg per 100 g fish
In other words, more than 5 times as much for the mackerel. Since mackerel tends to be overfished (more so than monkfish, at least), you might consider omega-3 supplements if you want to be conscious of environmental aspects.
