what fish should you NOT eat? What all are coldwater fish? And what about salt and fresh water fish?

Response from Mr. Vergel

Omega-3 fats that are good for health, lipids, and metabolism are found abundantly in cold water fish like salmon, sardines, tuna, rainbow trout, anchovies, and herring. Other fish also have Omega-3 fats but not as much as these. Fish not to eat: raw fish (possible parasites, unless you are 100% sure you know it is clean and fresh), and fish that contain mercury.

Fish that contain the highest level of mercury are larger and older sharks, swordfish, king mackerel, and tilefish. Most other fish fall somewhere in between. The United States FDA has a complete listing of the mercury levels in commercial seafood and fish: Mercury Levels in Commercial Fish and Shellfish (1990-2010)
