Health benefits

Pompfret is considered as a super food in many regions of India on account of being  an excellent source of amino acids, omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin D, B2, potassium, iron, iodine and selenium. The consumption of fish is so important that the American Heart Association recommends eating it at least two times a week to make a part of everyone’s diet.

The antioxidants present in pomfret prevent depression, decrease stress levels and contribute to good mental health overall. Selenium fights off free radicals in the cells and prevents the growth of cancer.

The commercial fish industry in the United States is estimated to be around $90 billion in 2012, and demand only continues to increase at a fast pace. In fact, the haul of fishers in 2010 was weighed at around 109 million metric tons; a staggering figure which possibly contributes to disruption of our ocean’s ecosystems.
