For starters, seafood is an excellent source of protein, something we all need to help our body help itself, especially children, teens, and moms-to-be. Plus, it’s low in saturated fat.
Eating seafood is also an easy way to bump up your vitamins, including A, B-complex, and C. Consider it a bonus from out of the blue.
And we can’t talk about seafood without talking about omega-3 fatty acids. Many species of Canadian Seafood are excellent sources of this critical nutrient.
It’s not always easy to find time for proper nutrition or a quiet moment (or not so quiet!) at the table with your family. But, when you’re feeling the time crunch, Canadian Seafood can be a game-changer.
Seafood is easier to cook than you may think, and it works with many of your favourite dishes you already love. Making fast, nutritious, and delicious meals frees up more time in your day to stay caught up on what you have to do and to enjoy the things you love to do, including those out of the blue adventures and occasions.
When you purchase live, fresh, shelf-stable, or frozen Canadian Seafood, you’re supporting an industry that stretches from coast to coast to coast, touching small towns, remote Indigenous communities, and our biggest cities.
From fish harvesters on oceans, lakes, and farms to processors to people and businesses that keep the supply chain moving, when you Choose Canadian Seafood, you’re supporting a $9 billion industry and over 90,000 jobs. How good does that make you feel about putting more seafood on your menu?
