How Much Salmon Is Safe To Eat In A Week?

Experts recommend that most adults consume no more than eight to 12 ounces of salmon per week.

8 to 12 ounces of salmon per week is excellent for the general population, balancing its health advantages with the minimal but real risk of mercury exposure.

However, when it comes to certain populations, the amount of salmon that can be safely consumed in a week may be somewhat smaller.

For children between the ages of four and seven, that goes up to two two-ounce servings twice per week.

For children between the ages of eight and 10, two three-ounce servings of salmon are considered ideal.

Once a child reaches age 11, the FDA recommends two four-ounce servings per week. Most adults can safely consume up to 12 ounces per week.

However, concerns about contaminants aside, adults looking to limit cholesterol intake might benefit from limiting their salmon intake to eight ounces per week

The same is true of diabetics, those with gout, and those looking to reduce their caloric intake.
