Why is it important to eat fish?

Protein promotes muscle growth, and helps maintain muscle mass and normal bones, which are just a few reasons as to why it’s so important to eat fish. With such an array of essential nutrients that help to keep us healthy, eating fish is a great way to ensure you’re enjoying a balanced and healthy diet. Some species are also an excellent source of Omega-3, an essential fatty acid that our bodies cannot make themselves. Our Omega-3 fish fingers are a fantastic way to boost your Omega-3 intake, whilst enjoying the delicious, 100% fish fillet coated in crispy breadcrumbs.
