Health Benefits of Wild Seafood

Wild seafood is an important part of a healthy diet. It is an excellent source of protein, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and healthy fats. Eating one to two servings of fatty fish per week reduces the risk for heart attack by one-third.

Canadian Albacore Tuna

Canadian Albacore is high in selenium an anti-oxident essential to many bodily functions, including:

  • growth and development
  • cancer prevention
  • thyroid function
  • brain, heart and immune system functions
  • reduction of inflammation

Canadian Albacore is harvested at a young age (2-3 years) before the fish have time to accumulate any significant levels of mercury. When selenium in our body binds with mercury, both are not bio-available. When selenium is equal or greater to mercury, the toxic effects of mercury are mitigated.

Wild Salmon and Wild Sablefish

Wild salmon and wild sablefish are high in omega-3s EPA and DHA. These long-chain fatty acids are essential to good health throughout our lives. The benefits of EPA and DHA include:
  • heart health, brain health, joint health and eye health
  • prevention of inflammation
  • lower risks for breast, prostate and colorectal cancer
  • lower risks for many chronic diseases including: cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s, macular degeneration, multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis

Wild salmon harvested near Haida Gwaii are at their peak in omega-3s oil content.

Wild Pacific Spot Prawns

  • Wild prawns contain an unusual 1:1 ratio of omega-3s and omega-6 fatty acids. The ratios are associated with decreased risks for obesity, high blood pressure and Type 2 Diabetes.

Wild prawns contain two potent antioxidants:

  • Selenium protects the body from free radicals that can damage DNA and cell membranes, leading to premature aging
  • Astaxanthin (which gives spot prawns their beautiful colour) reduces inflammation a known trigger for aging and disease.
