    Tinned or fresh salmon is fantastic for you and has low mercury levels compared to other fish. Canned tuna is fine but don't go overboard on it. 200 or so grams of canned tuna a week for a 60kg body weight is fine. But don't go eating a 100g can a day or something because that would put you well over the recommended limits for pregnancy. Note this is based on the more conservative limits set by the US EPA and a few other countries though.

    There's a summary of the maths behind it here in case you are the morbidly curious type like me -
