Fish is one of the world’s most eaten foods, and for most people it is their main source of animal protein. Countries such as Portugal, New Zealand, Japan, Iceland and Australia have the world’s largest per capita consumption of fish in the world. According to the Food Standards Agency people should ideally consume at least two portions of fish each week, one of those being an oil-rich type of fish such as mackerel or herring. The oil in these types of fish contains large amounts of Omega-3 type oils, a component of every cell in the human body, and crucial for proper brain functioning.

Low fat fish like haddock and cod, both types of whitefish, can be combined with oily Omega-3 fish like sardines, fresh tuna, salmon and trout, can aid in the defense against coronary heart disease, and also help strengthen bones and teeth. Shellfish, like shrimp and lobster, are high in zinc, an important element necessary for healthy skin and muscles, and also contributes to an individual’s fertility.

There are many health benefits to eating fish, but there are also some concerns. Mercury poisoning can be a problem when eating fish that are high up in the food chain. The reason for this is that shellfish and ordinary fish both have a natural tendency to concentrate mercury in their bodies. In the muscle tissue the mercury is converted to methyl mercury, which is a highly toxic organic compound of mercury. Because fish are much more adept at retaining and accumulating the mercury rather than depurating it, the mercury becomes more concentrated in their bodies over time. As larger fish eat smaller fish containing mercury, all the mercury in the smaller fish becomes assimilated into the body of the larger fish. This is a problem for the consumption of fish high on the food chain such as shark, swordfish, king mackerel, albacore tuna and tilefish.

The Yellow Reef in Denmark has built in the 80s and 90s, an almost legendary reputation as Grossfischrevier. Nowhere else could they catch many big fish so and so. It has become a little calmer, but there is really nothing going on, as some alarmists are trying to make us believe? The Yellow Reef is an underwater plateau in northern Denmark, about 30-40 km from the coast. It falls back to Norway from 30-40 m water depths up to 700 m in the Norwegian channel – with an irregular soil profile. Ie are here to find individual surveys, as well as channels, a variety of ship wrecks provide shelter and food to the fish.

Also from Tyboron and Skagen drive launches for the yellow reef, but have this one a little longer directions, so that sufficient time is to build the equipment and tie the assembly. The main fish species belonging to the family of cod: cod, ling, coley (saithe), pollack and haddock. But flatfish occur, such as plaice, turbot and halibut. In addition, catfish (catfish) and monkfish on the Yellow Reef is home.

In the '80s, when people began to discover the Yellow Reef angle Risch, mass kapitaler catches fish were almost the rule. Fish from which one could only dream of: cod of 40, 50 or more pounds, as capital burbots and monkfish. After the first run, it is indeed gone a bit quiet and the very rare Great, which does not mean that there is nothing to get on the Yellow Reef. Also today is still: the opportunity to catch big fish within reach, are nowhere better than here. (Unless you take the long drive to northern Norway on themselves or fly to the Big Game fishing for southern Europe), the fish are above the average sizes are anywhere else reached: the cod are at 50-20 pounds, 20-30 pounders are on almost every tour caught fish in the league 30-50 pounds and more are possible at any time, but naturally rare. To get the really big ling, a few boats to offer special deep-sea tours. It can be manually assigned deep channels and wrecks, fishing depth is 150 m and more. The equipment must therefore be of best quality, otherwise they will not survive the occurring loads. Rare on porbeagle fishing tours are offered. Here it is better to with like-minded people together and book includes a full charter. The captain will assist the anglers best efforts so that they come to their Fangerlebnissen. The Yellow Reef is far better than is sometimes portrayed. There are plenty of fish and there is a chance to catch the fish of his life. The legend lives on also.
