Wild, Fresh, and Sustainable: A Tribute for National Seafood Month

Posted on in our Seafood Blog

October is here, and with it comes the celebration of National Seafood Month. As we embrace this new month, there’s no better occasion to indulge in the bounties of the ocean, especially when it comes to wild seafood.

Did you know that a whopping 82% of consumers prefer wild seafood over its farmed counterpart? There’s a reason for this preference. Wild seafood, especially those harvested from the pristine waters of Alaska, offers a taste that’s unparalleled in its freshness and flavor.

Speaking of Alaska, this state is a powerhouse when it comes to seafood. A staggering 60% of our nation’s wild seafood is harvested from Alaskan waters. When you think of Alaskan seafood, it’s not just about salmon, although they boast five species of wild salmon. Their waters are teeming with a variety of white fish species like cod, halibut, pollock, sablefish, rockfish, flounder, and let’s not forget the delectable crab.

But the allure of Alaskan seafood isn’t just in its taste. It’s a powerhouse of nutrition. Consuming seafood from Alaska is like giving your body a health boost. The omega-3s, vitamin D, B12, iron, and zinc found in these seafood varieties have proven benefits for heart health, brain functionality, immune system, and overall wellness.

As we celebrate National Seafood Month, let’s make a conscious choice to support sustainable fishing practices. By choosing wild seafood, especially from regions like Alaska that prioritize environmental standards, we are not only treating our taste buds but also contributing to the health of our oceans.
