    Depends how strict you want to be. I've stayed away from deep sea fish, shellfish and smoked salmon.

    I was told the fish to avoid while pg are those that r high in mercury. Particularly Barramundi. I stuck to snapper, perch, flathead, dory etc.

    Enjoy, I ate so much fish & chips when I was pregnant :-)

    Whiting perfect.

    I ate whiting nearly every week in my last pregnancy!

    I ate a lot of whiting while pregnant too and my 2 year old is (in my opinion) a genius. Coincidence? I think not. Go the whiting !

    It’s important to remember that the body can and does get rid of mercury over
    time. So people only go over the safe levels if they eat a lot of high
    mercury-containing fish regularly over many months. Here are the current Australian guidelines for safe levels of mercury in the diet for pregnant women.
    Limit to one serve (150g) per fortnight – billfish (swordfish,
    broadbill and marlin) and shark (flake), with no other fish eaten in that
    fortnight.
    Limit to one serve (150g) per week – orange roughy (deep sea perch)
    or catfish, with no other fish eaten that week.
    Eat 2–3 serves per week – of any other fish or seafood (for example,
    salmon or tuna).
