In brief: Canned tuna

Canned tuna is pretty good, but not in large quantities - everything in moderation.

In brief: Shrimp, tuna, salmon

You should avoid eating shark, swordfish, king mackerel, or tilefish during pregnancy.
These large fish contain high levels of mercury. Common types of fish that are low in mercury are shrimp, canned light tuna (not albacore, which has a higher mercury content), salmon, pollock, and catfish. You can safely eat up to 12 ounces (about two meals) of these fish per week while you are pregnant.
