Why fish food? Baja Fish Tacos.

Not only fish food is tasty, but fish has a lot of good stuff in it.  It’s an excellent source high quality protein and lots of vitamins and also minerals, which includes vitamins Any, B-12 and also D, phosphorus, magnesium, selenium, and also iodine in marine fish. Most doctors recommend to eat more fish food rather than meet. There's also evidence for fish being beneficial for many
health problems, including osteoporosis and infections. There are even studies that show that fish has a major role in the prevention of cancers, including kidney, skin and colon cancers. And fish oil contains Omega-3 fatty acids witch are key for normal development and growth.
