      Survey: Most pregnant women eating too little fish

      (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A recent survey of pregnant women found most are eating a little amount of fish or none at all.

      The concern is that bigger fish have higher levels of mercury, which can harm a developing brain.

      Now, the FDA and EPA are trying to clear up questions so more pregnant and breastfeeding women--as well as children--can eat fish.

      The new guidelines recommend eating at least 8 ounces of seafood low in mercury two to three times a week.

      Some fish lower in mercury are: shrimp, salmon, tilapia, and cod.
