We have sorted our complete nutrition and vitamin database of fish, based on amount of Iron. Click a food item to give a full nutrition breakdown which can be scaled for different amounts of Fish, from our list of Fish high in Iron.

This page shows the amount of Iron in Mollusks, clam, mixed species, cooked, moist heat through to Fish, sunfish, pumpkin seed, cooked, dry heat. The amount ranges from 27.96 mg through to 1.54 mg of Iron in 100g. For a complete list we also have a list of foods high in Iron.

Please remember that this gives an accurate value per 100g for Iron in Fish. For example 100g of Mollusks, clam, mixed species, cooked, moist heat contains 27.96 mg of Iron. However, this is not the full story when considering your nutritional requirements. You should also take into account portion sizes when you are considering the amount of Iron in Fish and Iron rich Fish.

For example chives have a high amount of vitamin C in 100 grams but a portion size may only be a tablespoon or 0.2 g, so please bear this in mind when trying to increase or decrease the amount of Iron in your diet. Otherwise, we hope you find the site informative and that this is a helpful list of Fish with a high Iron content.
