Happy National Seafood Month

How will you celebrate?!

As another October rolls around, National Seafood Month is upon us once again! 

We would like to thank all of the seafood lovers for their support towards the industry, especially this past year. We would not be able to serve the highest quality products on the market without you! Now, more than ever, our health is of the utmost importance. It is crucial that we know what we put in our bodies. Luckily, seafood comes low fat, protein-packed, and contains various amounts of vitamins and minerals. Vitamin A, B, D, and Omega 3 fatty acids can be found and can help improve heart and brain function, protect vision, and can boost immune systems. Other elements like iron, zinc, and iodine support these functions to strengthen your body.

Let’s look at some facts:

  • According to leading research at Seafood Nutrition Partnership, eating seafood two-three times per week reduces the risk of death from any health-related cause by 17%.
  • People who incorporate fish into their diet are 20% less likely to suffer from depression with the help of fatty acids.
  • Increasing your seafood intake by two servings per week will lower your chances of heart disease by 36%.
  • Women who are pregnant that consume seafood increases the brain development of their child.
  • A study from UCLA shows that if you consume fish regularly, your brain is less at risk of Alzheimer's and increases your brain’s hippocampus (memory function).
