I love eating smoked salmon. Can I continue enjoying it during pregnancy?

Although there has been a lot of paranoia regarding high levels of mercury in raw fish, salmon is considered to be a safe pick. As long as it is a farmed salmon, there are no risks of parasites.
The FDA categorizes salmon under ‘best choices’ for pregnant women. The reason for this being, it has relatively low levels of mercury. Salmon is also considered to be one of the most nutritious foods in the world. Nutrients like selenium, phosphorus, potassium, vitamins B5, B12, B3 and D, Omega-3 fatty acids and proteins are essential for neonatal development and are found in abundance in salmon. Hence, expectant mothers can enjoy 8-12 ounces of salmon every week.
