Is White Fish good for you?

Fish in general has a lot of nutritional benefits.  Fish is high in omega-3 fatty acids, contains high-quality protein, selenium, Vitamin B12, and and Vitamin D.  White fish is generally a lot lower in calories than other fish and is generally really filling.   Not all white fish is create equal though, so make sure if you are going to eat fish often, you do a little research about the type of fish you are eating. Paying attention to mercury levels is something you may also want to do.
