Celebrate Life Below Water. Eat Blue

“For most of history, man has had to fight nature to survive; in this century he is beginning to realize that, in order to survive, he must protect it.”

—Jacques-Yves Cousteau

Human Health

Eat Blue™ is all about celebrating life below water, but it is also a reminder to take care of ourselves. We all want great-tasting seafood products that are healthy, safe, free of contaminants such as plastics or pathogens, and contribute to a healthy body, mind and spirit.

Seafood is an important part of a healthy, balanced diet. It has important proteins and vitamins that support physical development and healthy immune systems, brain development and learning, strong bones and mental wellness. Seafood may also prevent heart disease and lower the risk of obesity.

The Food and Drug Administration and Environmental Protection Agency issued dietary guidelines in July 2019 that recommend at least 2 servings per week of seafood, and 2-3 servings of low-mercury seafood per week for pregnant or nursing women.

There are also pharmaceutical drugs and medicines that are derived from life below water, and there are yet-to-be-discovered compounds from the ocean that can benefit human health in other ways.  We are just starting to scratch the surface and explore the depths of the ocean, which points to how critical it is to protect ocean species.
