For me it has to be wild caught alaskan salmon. I have always liked fish, especially salmon, so it is a win win that I love the flavor and that it is a great source of omega 3 fatty acids. In Alaska, you can actually catch one and eat it raw...I want to do that some day.

Wild salmon, mackerel and sardines are all on my menu. Not to mention an array of shellfish. I love lobster, scallops, crab, prawns (shrimp) etc

I live on a small island, so we get better access than a lot of places to seafood.

Ooh tough one, wild, sustainable salmon is a good one , in both taste and nutritional profile and omega 3 fatty acids, trout is another favorite and is very high in vitamin b12 but is not quite as outstanding as salmon in terms of omega 3 fatty acids, tuna is another favorite but mercury and sustainability is a concern, and though I don't personally eat them, oysters are excellent in terms of zinc (just be careful with shellfish that they're safe and not contaminated with amything infectious)

When I buy fish, I consider nutrient-density and price. The healthiest fish is wild salmon - lots of omega-3 and vitamin D - but it is a rare treat for me as it is so expensive where I live. I do eat canned wild salmon and occasionally fresh farmed salmon. The fish I eat most is wild-caught mackerel which is, I believe, second best for nutrient-density after salmon. Luckily, it is inexpensive where I live (Ireland).

Shellfish are extremely nutrient-dense. I like mussels and crab. Oysters are highly recommended, but I have yet to try them.

Wild salmon has almost 1000 Units of Vit D per 100 gram and 2 grams of Omega 3. But you have to eat it raw or close to raw, if you cook it at high heat the omega 3 will oxidize and go rancid, and will do you more harm than good
