Indeed, take it at the foot of the word. Living in very cold and shallow waters, the colour of your skin takes on a bluish tone.
To make it easier to identify them, look at their tail, the blues have it in the shape of an arrow.
Bluefish have between 8% and 12% intramuscular fat (under the skin), which is quite high compared to white fish, for example.
Explanation of this percentage
The fish with the highest fat accumulation are those that need more energy for their metabolism and vital development: those that make long migrations or have a very high swimming power due to the type of habitat in which they are found.
With respect to its nutritional value…
Fish have deposits of polyunsaturated fatty acids, also called essential fatty acids, such as omega 3 and omega 6 and in the case of blue fish, this deposit is higher.
These essential fatty acids are very important because they are not produced by our body, but can be assimilated through the diet.
Thanks to the ingestion of foods rich in omega 3, the metabolic reactions of the organism are kept active, affecting these benefits on the blood circulatory system and favouring the fluidity of the blood through the veins and arteries.
In addition, it helps the defenses, in treatments of skin diseases and has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties.
