The health benefits of sushi

High in omega-3 fatty acids, sushi is part of a Japanese diet that's said to increase life expectancy


Fish and seafood

Sushi is low in calories. White fish such as sea bass and red snapper have less than 100 calories per 3 1?2 oz [100g]. Even
richer fish such as mackerel, eel, and the fattier cut of tuna, toro, have less than 200 calories per 3 1?2 oz [100g].

Oily fish, such as mackerel, sardine, and herring are high in omega-3 fatty acids, which can be effective in preventing heart disease, stroke and arthritis.
