Bisugo Fish (Threadfin bream) health benefits

Bisugo fish (Threadfin bream) is one top fish that I love in cooking Paksiw na isda (fish in vinegar sauce). These fish are found in tropical waters of the Indian and western Pacific Oceans. The meat of the Bisugo fish (Threadfin bream) is white and they are oily fish. These oily fish is a vital source of essential fatty acids and contains a wide variety of vitamins and minerals.

It is better to make a smart choice in picking the foods that we eat. Eating fish and other seafood should form a major part of our healthy diet. I noticed from my grandparents and most aged people prefer to eat fish rather than pork. Fish can be easily digested and absorbed by our body. The white meat of Bisugo fish truly taste well no matter how you cook it. I would suggests you cook it Paksiw (fish in vinegar sauce) or fried.

Other Fishes that are high in Omega 3 are Salmon, Blue Warehou, Rainbow Trout, Tailor, Blue Eye Trevalla, Silver Perch, Red fish, Flathead, Yellowtail Kingfish, Blue Mackerel, Pilchards, Sea Mullet and Trevally.

    While it maybe out of the topic but if you watched the latest comedy movie of Ogie Alcasid titled “Boy Pickup”, that Bisugo fish was one of the subjects in the pick up lines. Ok, wait.. I love eating fish, of all kinds and I guess I can dine on them everyday or every meal perhaps. Great to know about those natural health benefits. Thank you for sharing!

    Fish is always a preferred viand in our house. Its just too bad that they are getting more expensive than chicken and pork.

    One of my favorite fish! Then again, I’m a sucker for seafood. Thanks for sharing all the info about the health benefits, and about the name, too. I’ve known it more for its English name than its Filipino name. :)

    I am a picky fish eater even though it is high up in the food pyramid. I wonder what Bisogo is called in Ilonggo?

    I don’t like Bisugo fish, but I learned a lot here. I prefer to eat Tilapia, Galunggong and Bangus.
