Strong seafood science is our foundation.

SNP’s Scientific Nutrition Advisory Council is composed of the world’s leading researchers united passionately around seafood as critical for the health of all Americans. Follow along all summer as they share their knowledge, all leading up to the 6th annual State of the Science Symposium on September 22.

Seafood helps support your family’s health. Pregnant women who eat seafood at least twice a week have babies with higher IQs with an average gain of about 7.7 IQ points. Kids who eat seafood feel calmer and have a better ability to focus, which helps them do better in school. Seafood has even been proven to reduce stress and anxiety and also promotes improved sleep! In these uncertain times, it is good to know that seafood has immune-boosting health properties including vitamin D, zinc, and selenium.

Learn more about all of these topics throughout the summer directly from the experts.

Learn with us all summer long.

We will update the calendar throughout the summer. Be sure to follow us for ongoing #seafoodscience on Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn.

SNP President Linda Cornish is the special guest on the CONCH Podcast

Did you know that seafood is chock-full of nutrients that are critical to brain, heart, and overall health? While seafood is one of the most researched food sources in terms of nutritional benefits, much of this information wasn’t communicated to consumers—until Seafood Nutrition Partnership came along. In the latest episode of The Conch podcast, we learn how one woman has made it her mission to make sure Americans eat seafood twice a week to support their health, the health of the seafood industry, and the health of fishers and coastal communities around the world.

Julie welcomes Linda Cornish, President of the Seafood Nutrition Partnership, a non-profit organization inspiring a healthier America through a balanced diet that includes seafood.
