Event description

Description

The Seafood Nutrition Partnership is delighted to host the 3rd Annual State of the Science Symposium. This annual event provides a forum for global leaders in human nutrition to outline the latest consensus on all aspects of seafood nutrition.

Meeting Objectives

The State of the Science Symposium held in the Fall in advance of National Seafood Month provides the latest information on seafood nutrition science. All aspects on the science and technology of seafood, including human nutrition and environmental sustainability will be addressed by leading experts. Federal agency employees are invited free with employment identification. This event is a widely attended event, per ethics rules.

This program produced by the SNP Scientific & Nutrition Advisory Council brings together experts in this space. Educational presentations will merge technical analysis and accessible information for non-specialists. Sessions at this year’s symposium include: Dietary Guidelines 2020-2025, Seafood Consumption & Neurocognitive Development, Addressing the US Seafood Supply and Demand, Building Lifelong Seafood Consumers.

The 2015-2020 USDA/HHS Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends at least two servings of seafood per week and at least 250mg of omega-3s EPA+DHA per day to support heart and brain health as part of a healthy diet. Only 10% of Americans eat seafood twice a week and on average Americans take in 80mg of omega-3s EPA+DHA per day.
