Fish Livers Beneficial to Health

Fish livers have been confirmed to be a good source of polyunsaturated fat beneficial to health by researchers at the University of Almeria in Spain.
Anchovies are one of the fish whose livers contain the highest levels of these substances."The livers of edible fish are a good source of long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids  (LCPUFA), especially those in the omega 3 family, such as eicisapentanoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)," said Jose Luis Guil-Guerrero, lead author of the study. 
These fatty acids are used to prevent and treat various complaints, such as some kinds of cancer, depression, Alzheimer's disease, schizophrenia, behavioural problems and cardiovascular diseases.
The study focused on 12 kinds of fish that are commonly eaten in south eastern Spain, such as hake, shortfin mako and European pilchard. The livers of the great weever (Trachinus draco) and the European anchovy (Engraulis encrasicolus) were those that showed up the highest levels of LCPUFA
