Benefits of consuming seafood

  • Seafood, especially fatty fish like salmon, trout, and mackerel, is abundant in omega-3 fatty acids. These essential fats promote heart health, reduce inflammation, and support cognitive function.
  • Seafood is an excellent source of high-quality protein, essential for muscle growth, repair, and overall body function. Protein from seafood is often more easily digestible than protein from land-based sources.
