If not, you will be deficient in the ESSENTIAL oil Omega 3. Science has determined that 65% of us have degenerative disease because of this deficiency. You can replace the raw fish with a pleasant lemon flavored omega 3 oil. It is by SeaBiotics and is called alkyl transfactor.

I was born in Lima too and lived half my life in the 'Lince' district, attended school in the 'Rimac' District (that was always a very rough area..LOL.. loved it!) and worked at the Peruvian Army Technical School in 'Chorrillos' back in 87 as a computer teacher ("E.T.E" Escuela Tecnica del Ejercito), The other half i lived in the USA (until now).

I do enjoy ceviche! Nice knowing it is good for me too!
Yep, that is real raw fish, beats any sushi.. LOL and much tastier too. I know some northAmerican people can't picture it. Me, being from Peru, is a traditional dish from the coast.
I admit is unusual for some people, but... I like it.. LOL
I love sushi and eat it at least once a week. In addition I've been taking supplements since I was a child. We call it tran in Norway and the taste of the fish oil was deeply hated when I was a child. Luckily for me now it comes in capsules!
I love sushi. I never thought I'd like it, but thought I was eating veggie and found out it was fish. After that, I started craving it.
I now eat it a couple times a month, but have to get omega-3 in an incredibly nutritious liquid vitamin suppliment. Did you know there is also Omega 6 and 12? I didn't know until I bought this liquid suppliment.
I love sushi, didn't think I'd like but an old bf many years ago forced me to try it. I live where it's impossible to find sushi, but I look for it every time I travel now. Can't get too much of a good thing.
I like shsui/shashimi but don't eat enough of it (or coorked fish) to get enough omega-3, but theres alot of omega-3 sources:
The following foods are especially rich in the omega-3s (I just cut-n-pasted em).
Algae, including spirulina
Chia (a relative to mint)
Flax seed, freshly ground
Flax seed oil
Whole grains, such as brown rice and whole grain breads
Olive oil (choose extra virgin)
I don't use 'supplements' but see them all the time and they can be expensive, but heres something I wasn't aware of and to consider if you do use them (again cut-n-pasted, and I can't reference the source cuz urls are deleted on here):
Should you buy omega-3 supplements?
A word about supplements. Fish oil and flax seed oils are extremely sensitive to light and to air oxidation. They aren?t good practical sources. If you buy them, choose a store that keeps them refrigerated and buy in small quantities.
Flax seed is an excellent and practical source of linolenic acid. The iron-hard seed coat, while protecting the oil from deterioration, also protects the seed from digestion.
To get around this problem, grind the flax seed in a coffee grinder. A tablespoon of ground flax seed delivers 1.5 grams of linolenic acid. Sprinkle the freshly ground flour on cereal or bake in bread or muffins.
