Fish – especially the oily varieties (think salmon, sardines, tuna, barramundi and mackerel) – is rich in long-chain omega-3 fatty acids. These compounds help your body to build brain cell membranes... which basically means fish makes you smarter (they don’t swim around in schools for nothing, you know).
Without missing a beat, it’s brilliant for your heart too
Turns out omega-3 fatty acids (yup, those guys again) are pretty great when it comes to heart health. They’ve been linked to stabilising irregular rhythms, improving blood pressure and preventing blood clots, all factors that, if left unseen to, can contribute to heart failure.

Catch of the day
If you suddenly feel like a delicious fish dish (and who could blame you, really), you’ll be glad to know fresh barramundi has just landed in store.
