Mackeral

Hi I ate 180g of Mackeral and I am 6 weeks pregnant. Read in a book that you should not eat this fish because of the high mercury content, now I am very worried? Is this dangerous and must I avoid this fish for the rest of my pregnancy?

In moderation it isn't a problem, but you obviously should not eat too much too often.
