29 Jan Health Benefits of Sustainably Sourced Seafood
How healthy is your diet?
What you eat is extremely important for your overall health because your body needs a variety of nutrients to function properly. If you’re looking for ways to improve your nutrition habits, adding a fish to your diet is a great way to start. The 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans highlights the importance of consuming an average of 8 ounces of seafood per week.
Before you eat your fish, make sure that you’re supporting a company that cares about its responsibilities to the environment. At Eastern Fish, we are proactively promoting sustainable standards as part of our obligation to environmental leadership.
