Fish is a food consumed by many species, including humans. The word “fish” refers to both the animal and to the food prepared from it. Fish has been an important source of protein for humans throughout recorded history. Some languages distinguish between fish as an animal and the food prepared from it. However other languages, such as English or French, do not make this distinction, and the same word used to refer to a live fish in the ocean is also used to refer to food prepared from it. In English this applies also to chicken but not to pork and beef. The modern English word for fish comes from the Old English word ‘fisc’ (plural: fiscas), which was pronounced as it is today. Fish, especially saltwater fish, is high in omega 3 fatty acids, which are heart-friendly, and a regular diet of fish is highly recommended by nutritionists. This is conjectured to be one of the major causes of reduced risk for cardiovascular diseases in the Inuit. It has been suggestedby whom?] that the longer lifespan of Japanese and Nordic populations may be partially due to their higher consumption of fish and seafood. The Mediterranean diet is likewise based on a rich intake of fish. Nutritionists recommend that fish be eaten at least 2-3 times a week.
