  1. I found this article to be very informative. While living in the Virgin Islands I did eat a lot of fresh fish but when I had to return stateside due to PTSD and other medical problems, I developed more depression. Then I lost my Mom and fell in to even deeper depression. Knowing that Omega-3’s and vitamin D can be essential to my health, is wonderful. I also have osteoarthritis and did not know that fish oil may help with the inflammation! Yes, I am a mess! Thank you for this article.

  2. I have loved seafood for as long as I can remember. seafood was considered poor mans food. Songs were written about it In Ireland it was about the fishmonger Molly Malone. selling her live shellfish with the cry alive, alive, O and how one can hear her ghost still crying out selling her wares on the streets of Dublin. It was in Ireland I had the best fish chowder I ever had. being an island, fish are plentiful. the one thing that kept many from starving in the potato famine. at one time fish was the cheapest thing you could buy to feed your family. Many times I caught perch in the Detroit River for dinner.. These were times when we never knew who would be sitting at our table for dinner. People today don’t know Hungar. even the poorest can get food when needed. The problem is that fish are almost never fresh anymore. learn to recognize the signs that they have been frozen many times. so many people have never tasted fresh fish. the main problem is that it must be transported. the suppliers must find ways to keep their fish from damage. prepackaging doesn’t allow you to inspect it before you buy it. the result is that it gets tossed away and wasted. find good sources you can trust to have fresh fish. its worth the extra you will pay. better for you as well.———- I, Grampa
