In brief: Depends.

Mercury from eating fish can be a problem, but there are ways to keep it to a minmum or safe level.
Certain groups should be more careful, including pregnant women, young children/ infants, and breastfeeding mothers. Google "fish, mercury" and you will get several websites that have downloadable charts that tell which fish are safer for both mercury and pcbs (another toxin in some fish).
