Mackerel is an important food fish that is consumed worldwide; as an oily fish, it is a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids.

Mackerel is a common name applied to a number of different species of pelagic fish,
they are found in both temperate and tropical seas, mostly living along the coast or offshore in the oceanic environment.

Fish is the main source of animal omega−3 fatty acids – EPA and DHA.

Studies have shown that EPA and DHA are important for proper fetal development, including neuronal, retinal, and immune function. EPA and DHA may affect many aspects of cardiovascular function including inflammation, peripheral artery disease, major coronary events, and anticoagulation. EPA and DHA have been linked to promising results in prevention, weight management, and cognitive function in those with very mild Alzheimer’s disease.
