Astonishing Nutritious Benefits of Seafoods

ByIkechukwu Oduah

Seafood is any form of sea life regarded as food by humans. Seafood prominently includes fish and shellfish. Edible sea plants, such as some seaweeds and microalgae, are widely eaten as seafood around the world.Historically, sea mammals such as whales and dolphins have been consumed as food, though that happens to a lesser extent these days. Seafood is often distinguished from meat, although it is still animal and is excluded in a strict vegetarian diet. Seafood is an important source of protein in many diets around the world, especially in coastal areas. Most of the seafood harvest is consumed by humans, but a significant proportion is used as fish food to farm other fish or rear farm animal. Some seafoods (kelp) are used as food for other plants (fertilizer). In these ways, seafoods are indirectly used to produce further food for human consumption. Products, such as fish oil is also extracted from seafoods. Oil-rich fish such as mackerel or herring are rich in long chain Omega-3 oils. These oils are found in every cell of the human body and are required for human biological functions such as brain functionality. Whitefish such as haddock and cod are very low in fat and calories which, combined with oily fish rich in Omega-3 such as mackerel, sardines, fresh tuna and salmon , can help to protect against coronary heart disease, as well as helping to develop strong bones and teeth etc.
