In general, the pescetary diet generally has a much lower cholesterol content, which improves the overall health of the heart. [4]

Other fisherman may consider their diet as a transition to vegetarianism, an ethical commitment, or a practical need to obtain nutrients that are absent or not readily found in plants. [5]

Focusing on correct protein intake is very important when following a fish diet. [14][15]

The fish have a very low saturated fat content and contain very large amounts of polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids, which have been combined with possible treatments for many diseases such as heart disease, depression and ADD. [16]

Some fish sharks also include milk and eggs in their diet to increase meal choice combinations and increase protein and calcium intake. [17]
