October is Seafood Month

“The Environmental Defense Fund poll report from July concluded that ‘over 7 in 10 American voters would eat more seafood if there were higher safety standards on how farmed fish are produced.’ This is not surprising in light of studies showing that many seafoods are high in nutrients that increase immunity, resulting in a better physical response to infections such as Covid-19.”

So writes Cheng-Sheng Lee, Executive Director of the Center for Tropical and Subtropical Aquaculture, in the CTSA’s latest newsletter.

“Traceability, sustainability and conservation are among the most common concerns that consumers have when it comes to seafood, so it is important to capitalize on any opportunities to educate the public, he adds. Therefore, “This month's issue includes an article about the role of sustainable seafood at the first UN Food Systems Summit, as well as an announcement and link for a new CTSA survey for farmers, producers, and stakeholders in the U.S. affiliated Pacific Islands.”
