Think mackerel is ok as long as it´s cooked. Can´t have smoked salmon cos it´s not cooked. Any shellfish has to be cooked. I have had kippers and haddock, but cooked.

I'm veggy but I've googled -

Can I eat cold meats and smoked salmon when I'm pregnant?
Some countries advise pregnant women not to eat cold meats or smoked fish because of the risk of listeria. In the UK, we don't advise women to avoid these products because the risk is very low. The risk of listeria is much higher with soft mould-ripened cheeses (such as Brie and Camembert) or pâté, which you shouldn't eat during pregnancy. However, if you are concerned, you might also choose to avoid cold meats and smoked fish while you are pregnant.

DO NOT EAT
Do not eat refrigerated smoked seafood, such as salmon, trout, whitefish, cod, tuna, or mackerel. These types of smoked seafood are most often labeled as "nova-style," "lox," "kippered," "smoked," or "jerky."

and I found this -

Pregnant women and women considering pregnancy should not eat shark, swordfish, king mackerel or tilefish because they could contain enough mercury to harm an unborn infant's nervous system, according to an FDA advisory.

(http://www.fda.gov/FDAC/features/2001/201_safe.html)

Think I'd stay away from it but it doesn't seem that risky x
