Seafood Nutrition Partnership (SNP) is the leading 501(c)3 non-profit organization in the U.S. building awareness of the health and nutritional benefits of seafood. SNP is addressing the country’s public health crisis through education programs that inspire Americans to incorporate more seafood and omega-3s into their diets for improved health as per leading health organizations.
Seafood Nutrition Partnership is a 501(c)3 with a mission to inspire a healthier America through partnerships and outreach to raise awareness about the essential nutritional benefits of eating seafood.
We address the health risks associated with low seafood consumption through partners that provide health and nutrition guidance. Through our education efforts, we aim to:
- Build awareness about the essential nutritional benefits from eating seafood at least twice a week.
- Help Americans gain the skills to select, order, and prepare fish and shellfish.
- Inspire a healthier America by promoting a nutrient-rich diet that includes seafood.
Our Guiding Principles
ESSENTIAL HEALTH BENEFITS – Seafood provides unique health benefits as a lean protein and is the best source for Omega-3 fatty acids (EPA & DHA), which are healthy fats essential to human health and development.
SCIENCE DRIVEN – The health benefits of seafood are supported by science and science-based research drives us and guides our communications. The health benefits of eating seafood include reduced risk of heart disease and improved baby brain and eye development.
PARTNERSHIPS – We will partner with organizations in the public and private sector who share our view of the important nutritional value and health benefits of eating seafood.
FOCUS ON ALL SEAFOOD – Seafood is our focus and the Seafood Nutrition Partnership will not favor one species over another.
SUSTAINABILITY – We are committed to the waters that provide the seafood we eat and our effort will be mindful of how to ensure it is available for future generations.
