Why Seafood?

Seafood is a lean protein and significant research points to the health benefits of a seafood-rich diet – especially how seafood can enhance heart health and brain development. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend seafood be eaten at least twice a week, as part of a balanced diet. This recommendation distinguishes seafood among the most-important foods for good health and the valuable role it can play in helping address America’s public health crisis.

Seafood can literally save your life. It is estimated 50,000 people could avoid stroke or heart disease each year by eating seafood as recommended.
