It's cholesterol, not cholestrol. (Correct spelling may help you if you want to google the issue.)

Eating fish and other foods high in omega 3 can be a part of lowering cholesterol, yes.
If high cholesterol is a concern, you also need to be eating a diet fairly high in fiber, and eat plenty of plant-based foods in general.

Cutting out bad fats will lower cholesterol. So yes, eating fish instead of red meats, pork, and dark chicken meat, can definitely help.

My cholesterol was 230, I changed up my diet by eating the south beach diet way, and within months my cholesterol was doen to 187. I lost 30 lbs as well

The cholesterol you put in your mouth is not the cholesterol that ends up in your blood stream, not ever. I eat a low-carb, high protein diet with plenty of fish and chicken but also beef and pork--and exercise five times a week--and all my readings jumped into shape.
