I've heard that eating fish is good for my heart. Why is that? Only hear bad stuff about fish anymore.

In brief: Depends

Eating fish can be good for you but certain fish higher in the food chain such as tuna and swordfish concentrate more pollutants in the environment such as mercury so you need to be cautious and eat fish not as high in the food chain like salmon for example.
Fish like tuna should be eaten much less often like less than once a week.
