In celebration of National Seafood Month, October is a time to shine the spotlight on sustainable fisheries, their economic benefits, and the health benefits offered by eating a diet rich in seafood.
The U.S. has some of the largest, most sustainably managed fisheries in the world, and we’re the global leaders in sustainable seafood.
There is no doubt that our fisheries provide recreation for our costal communities, but they are also big business.
Our economy, as well as recreational and small-scale tribal fishermen, and large-scale vessels depend on our fish supply to make a living. According to Fishwatch.gov, as of 2015, fisheries contributed $208 billion to the U.S. economy and supported 1.6 million jobs.
On another note, when it comes to our diet, seafood provides a wealth of nutrients. Not only is seafood a source of high-quality protein, it’s rich in vitamins, minerals, omega-3 fatty acids, and it’s low in saturated fats. All which play a role in brain development, cardiovascular and immune health, and the development of strong bones.
Now that you have a short background of the “protein of the sea”, what are you waiting for? October - National Seafood Month - is here! It’s time to add a few seafood selections to your menu or tweak your current menu to offer new entrees.
