Should I be careful while having seatrout during pregnancy

Yes, you need to be cautious while having seatrout as it contains moderate levels of mercury. The FDA considers it to be a ‘good choice’ to have during pregnancy, however, in moderation. Seatrout can also be eaten pan-fried, smoked or baked, whichever way you want. But, it is advisable that you consult a doctor before including seatrout in your regular, pregnancy diet.
