Mackerel is a great source of protein and minerals, such as magnesium (21 percent of daily value), phosphorus (24 percent of daily value) and especially selenium (71 percent of daily value). Remembering all this, you shouldn't also forget that mackerel contains a significant number of calories due to a high protein and fat content.
