Are there any studies on pregnant women and seafood?

    Yes, there have been studies that have looked into this. It seems that for the most part, seafood is fine to eat during a pregnancy (and is even encouraged as seafood has some very good nutritional qualities) as long as the seafood is cooked. In other words, only sushi and raw fish should be avoided. Here are a number of helpful links:,,qpx7,00.html

         The EPA recommends that pregnant or nursing women, women who may become pregrant, and young children should avoid certain types of seafood and freshwater fish. These include shark, swordfish, king mackerel, and tilefish. Instead, at-risk groups should eat seafood low in mercury like shrimp, salmon, and catfish.
