Cholesterol in fish

I notice there seems to be a lot of cholesterol in fish. Is this cholesterol primarily LDL or HDL cholesterol?

Cholesterol is cholesterol. LDL and HDL are products of your own bodies composed of lipids and proteins and are used to transport those lipids in your bloodstream.

Two completely separate things…


I would imagine that most gets metabolized as HDL, and does not significantly raise LDL.
