Calories in Fish
Fish are great when served with fresh vegetables, a small side of potato gratin, or even a salad. The table reveals the number of calories in fish per 100 grams (3.5 oz). It is difficult to accurately show the calorie content per fish portion as size differs between individuals and products, therefore the values are displayed for comparison purposes.
Poached and grilled fish are a great alternative to meat and provide vital nutrients for the body. Fish calories can be low if fresh white fish is chosen over fried fish from a restaurant or fish bar.
While you're checking out the calorie content in fish, take a look at the many benefits of eating fish!

Oily fish tends to be higher in calories than white fish because oily fish contains plenty of essential fatty acids which have been shown to help combat some types of heart disease. One portion of oily fish is recommended at least once per week.
Oily fish, such as salmon, mackerel, herring, sardines, pilchards and tuna, are rich in the type of polyunsaturated fat known as omega-3 fatty acids. While some other foods contain omega-3s, oily fish contain the eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acids (DHA). These oils have been much studied in recent years and are useful to help minimize joint pain as well as lower the risk of heart disease and some cancers. Fish oils are also one of the best sources of vitamin D in the diet, which increases calcium absorption. They can also help the condition of your hair and skin to make it strong and shiny!
